Are you looking for a good idea on making a positive difference in the world without having to give up beer or cookies for the next three months?  Yep, I'm talking about New Year's resolutions. 

"What's your New Year's resolution?" will be the topic of conversation at every ball-dropping shindig this evening and every buffalo wing bloated pigskin party tomorrow afternoon.  My suggestion - join a Pheasants Forever chapter.

Joining a chapter is a fun way to meet other bird hunters and dog lovers, and an easy way to have an impact in habitat and youth education projects that truly make a difference for the future of our hunting heritage.  Your participation is needed whether you attend a Pheasants Forever banquet this spring, volunteer to be a chapter officer, donate to a land acquisition, or help out at a youth mentor hunt.  We truly do WANT YOU!

Below is a list of Minnesota's upcoming Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever events around the state.  We'd love for you to join us:
