Federal Premium® and Pheasants Forever Reach Conservation Milestone
ANOKA, Minnesota -The partnership between Federal Premium® and Pheasants Forever has reached a new level. Federal recently produced the 15 millionth PF shell at its Anoka, Minnesota facility. This is good news for pheasants as a portion of the proceeds from each box sold goes directly to this grassroots habitat organization.
Federal Premium has been a longtime partner of PF, and each one of the specially marked boxes gives money directly to this important organization. At a time when vital CRP acres are being threatened, these funds enable PF to keep doing what they do best-protect and improve habitat.
"This has been a great program for both of us," said Marketing Director Kyle Tengwall. "Conservation is very important to Federal Premium. Having partners like PF who remain dedicated to improving and preserving wildlife is a must. These organizations are vital to our heritage, and we're proud to be associated with Pheasants Forever."
Pheasants Forever is in the middle of a banner year-they are celebrating 25 years of existence. PF started in Minnesota, and now there are over 650 chapters and 122,000 members nationwide, along with 100 Quail Forever chapters and 8,000 QF members nationwide. "The Habitat Organization" works hard to conserve wildlife habitat for pheasants, quail and other wildlife species, and are known as a grassroots organization that puts dollars where they matter most; on the ground.
Federal Premium is also expanding its royalty program this year with the introduction of Pheasants Forever Steel loads. These new offerings will provide hunters with great options in areas where lead shot is not permitted. Initially they will be available in 12 and 20 gauge 3", #3 and #5 options.
