St. Paul, Minn. – Sept. 18, 2020 – Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever has partnered with ALPS OutdoorZ to challenge upland hunters to preserve the nation’s outdoor lifestyle by taking a new or lapsed hunter afield in 2020-2021. The Hunter Mentor Challenge is aimed at restoring hunter numbers in the United States, a critical centerpiece for wildlife habitat conservation efforts nationwide.
The Save The Lifestyle Mentor Pledge encourages veteran outdoorsmen and women to take a less-experienced or new hunter into the field, teach them how to hunt ethically and successfully, emphasize the importance of habitat conservation, and illustrate the value of our hunting culture and heritage through one-on-one mentorship. It is this type of personal interaction that will help aspiring outdoorsmen and women to preserve America’s hunting lifestyle for generations to come.
Participation in the mentor pledge is easy and instantly rewarding. This program is currently being offered just in time for fall hunting season and will run through June 30, 2021 2021. Additionally, the Hunter Mentor Challenge covers any age of mentee, all species of wild game hunting, and each type of ethical/legal pursuit.
To enter, mentor participants can visit the Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever Hunter Mentor Challenge webpage, read the application guidelines, and complete the online entry form. Upon conclusion of the program June 30th, three successful entrants will win one of several prize packages:
- GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE
- One pair of lucky winners will get to experience the Hunt of a Lifetime in the fall season of 2021, sponsored by Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever and ALPS OutdoorZ. The winning team will be announced in July 2021.
- Additional prizes include ALPS OutdoorZ gear packages, ALPS OutdoorZ discounts, PF/QF memberships and Weatherby firearm giveaways.
Kicking off the partnership, Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever will publish a series of R3 (Recruitment, Retention, and Reactivation) articles to explore the ways the organization, its members, and partners are helping introduce a new generation of men and women to the outdoors. Blogs, videos, and social posts will be available next week leading up to National Hunting & Fishing Day on September 26, 2020.
