Two factors affect quail populations above all others—habitat and weather. While we can’t control the weather, we can influence the quality and quantity of upland habitat. Habitat is what supports long-term strong and healthy quail populations.
Since forming in 1982, Pheasants Forever, and its subsequent quail division, Quail Forever (formed in 2005) has created or enhanced wildlife habitat on more than 17 million acres across the United States and parts of Canada.
Here’s how Quail Forever and Pheasants Forever accomplishes this work: With a network of more than 700 chapters and 149,000 members across the United States and Canada, Quail Forever and Pheasants Forever are able to accomplish thousands of wildlife habitat projects annually.
Additionally, Quail Forever and Pheasants Forever participate in land acquisitions to permanently protect critical habitat for upland wildlife while simultaneously opening the areas to public recreation, including hunting. Completed in conjunction with local, state, and/or federal natural resource agencies, more than 190,000 acres are now protected and open to the public as a result of Quail Forever and Pheasants Forever’s participation.
