Milwaukee to Host National Pheasant Fest
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/07/2014

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever will take its National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic event to Milwaukee for the first time. The conference has been planned for February 14-16 at the Wisconsin Center.

The largest show in the country for upland hunters, bird dog owners and wildlife habitat conservationists, the event drew 28,855 people last February in Minneapolis.

"Pheasants Forever has a strong presence in Wisconsin and the state has a rich conservation tradition, which is why we're excited to bring our signature event to Milwaukee," said Howard Vincent, president & CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. Vincent adds that Milwaukee is conveniently located near other strong Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever states like Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan.

Wisconsin is home to 33 Pheasants Forever chapters. In addition to the 790,000 licensed hunters in Wisconsin, the state is second only to Minnesota in sending nonresident upland hunters to the Dakotas.
