Calling all female conservationists: Join us Saturday, February 15th as our National Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic goes beyond the bird for our Women, Wine & Wild Game event. This signature Women on the Wing gathering helps demonstrate the connections between land stewardship and opportunities to hunt for healthy wild game meat, while also fostering a greater understanding of the organization’s Women on the Wing Initiative in a social environment that allows for networking opportunities.  

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. with the event taking place from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample wild game appetizers, enjoy beverages from the bar and hear from an all-star line-up of guest speakers who will speak to the initiatives four programs: Women on the Wing Chapters, Women’s R3 (Recruit, Retain, Reactivate) events, Women, Wine & Wild Game and Conservation Outreach.

“This event brings together like-minded sportswomen, conservationist, partners and landowners who all share the same passion, providing a chance to unite, create memories, meet new friends and be motivated by what Women on the Wing offers,” provides Rachel Bush, North Dakota State Coordinator and event planner for the 2020 Women, Wine & Wild Game event. “I am truly grateful to be a part of the team who has made the Women, Wine & Wild Game event a reality. There is energy about this event, a hum, which brings a smile to my face and if it is anywhere as inspiring as last year’s event, you do not want to miss it.”

The ultimate vision of Women on the Wing is to create a larger audience of engaged conservationists. This ties back to Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever’s mission, as the organization looks to grow and diversify a larger audience by providing opportunities for anyone interested in wildlife conservation. The Women, Wine & Wild game social gathering creates a place to discuss what opportunities exist and what the future holds for the initiative.

The event cost is $40, which includes wild game appetizers, access to a cash bar and silent auction and your choice of a Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever membership. Plus, FREE entrance into the 2020 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic showroom floor.  We’re thrilled to have Walton’s…Everything But the Meat joining us as the event’s presenting sponsor.

So, what are you waiting for? Come share your stories, be inspired and get involved as we toast with new friends and learn how to get involved in our own communities.
