One-of-a-Kinds This Week on Pheasants Forever Television
The best bird hunting and conservation show on air is only on Outdoor Channel
Saint Paul, Minn. – July 21, 2009 – This week's episode of Pheasants Forever Television is definitely one-of-a-kind. The episode profiles a one-of-a-kind quail conservationist, a one-of-a-kind wildlife campaign and a one-of-a-kind guitar that's helping habitat. The episode will air on Outdoor Channel this Thursday at 1AM CDT / 2AM EDT, Friday at 7:30AM CDT / 8:30AM EDT and on Saturday at 2AM CDT / 3AM EDT and again at 3:30PM CDT / 4:30PM EDT.
First, Pheasants Forever Television travels to the Lone Star State for a hunt with David Harrison. As an 18-year-old high school senior in Midland, Texas, Harrison formed the West Texas Chapter of Quail Forever - the only teenager who has started a Quail Forever chapter. Not only that, Harrison is the owner and trainer of national champion bird dogs.
Next, Pheasants Forever Television looks at the beginning of Pheasants Forever's Build a Wildlife Area campaign. The Mud Lake Wildlife Management Area in Minnesota's Morrison County is home to pheasants, waterfowl, grouse, turkeys and deer and resulted from a unique fundraising campaign called Build a Wildlife Area. Today, campaigns in six states – Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin – have helped create eight new wildlife areas totaling over 3,000 acres all open to public hunting and recreation.
Finally, Pheasants Forever Television goes unplugged with Ren Ferguson, a master luthier for Gibson Guitar's acoustic division in Bozeman, Montana. A member of the Gallatin County Chapter of Pheasants Forever, Ferguson crafted an exquisite acoustic guitar featuring gold-leafing, a variety of woods, and beautiful pheasant images. The chapter then used the guitar to raise funds, which helped the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service complete a 600-acre land acquisition near the Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge.
