- February 11 -

Quail Forever welcomes Wingshooting USA TV creator/host Scott Linden to its National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic in Minneapolis this Feb. 15-17. Linden, who has been hunting his way from Oregon to the show towing his Aliner trailer, will set up the “Quail Camp” pop-up camper in his exhibit booth. Linden will be giving two upland hunting seminars daily at the show and previewing his upcoming book “What the Dogs Taught Me,” which is scheduled for release this spring.

In addition to delivering a daily seminar modeled after his upcoming release, “What the Dogs Taught Me,” Linden will also be presenting on western upland birds in “Go West, Young Man, for Quail and other Critters.” “Western quail species, prairie grouse and partridge are what some hunters would call ‘underutilized opportunities,’” says Bob St.Pierre, Quail Forever’s Vice President of Marketing, “Linden’s insight will guide hunters ready to make that trip of a lifetime out west, and he underscores the conservation ethic that’s needed to preserve the great western upland hunting tradition.”

Linden, who is a new contributor to the Quail Forever Journal of Quail Conservation, Quail Forever’s membership magazine, is a visible supporter of the organization’s wildlife habitat mission. “If you believe there’s a future for quail and quail habitat, you should believe in Quail Forever,” he says.

During his long career in upland entertainment, Linden, who is a branded “wirehair” man, has on-camera and in-field experience with more than 200 bird dogs, which is the stimulus for his new book and his National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic seminars. “Whether you own a Lab, spaniel, or pointing breed, I want to help you become a better bird hunter.”

Look for Linden’s “Quail Camp” Aliner trailer at booth #410. Seminar times are listed at www.pheasantfest.org.

National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic is also the country's largest event for upland hunters, sport dog owners and wildlife habitat conservationists, combining a national outdoor tradeshow, wildlife habitat seminar series, and family event complete with puppies, tractors, shotguns, and art. The event is open to the public.

Pheasants Forever, including its quail conservation division, Quail Forever, is the nation's largest nonprofit organization dedicated to upland habitat conservation. Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have more than 130,000 members and 700 local chapters across the United States and Canada. Chapters are empowered to determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds are spent, the only national conservation organization that operates through this truly grassroots structure.
