Jan 25, 2019 (Windsor) In an effort to support the preservation and growth of upland bird habitat on both private and public lands,Hayden Outdoors Real Estate has launched their National Sponsorship of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. Hayden Outdoors will market farm, ranch and recreational properties for sale to PF and QF members while making a significant gift commitment to upland wildlife.
Access to upland habitat for hunting with family and friends is a goal that Hayden Outdoors hopes to help sustain in the future. “As a real estate brokerage specializing in farmland and recreational property, Hayden Outdoors understands the importance of land stewardship and the value of quality wildlife habitat. When we decided that we wanted to do more for upland wildlife habitat, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever was a natural partner,” stated Dax Hayden, Hayden Outdoors managing partner and Life Member of Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever. “Our family and passionate real estate agents recognize ‘The Habitat Organization’ as an effective and efficient conservation partner. When we learned more about PF’s vision for the future, it became clear that we needed to provide additional support to ensure an upland legacy for future generations.”
Just in the past year, Leo Hayden has helped with the “Build a Wildlife Area” program in coordinating Pheasants Forever’s acquisition of 1,080 acres of land in Sherman County, KS that was recently transferred to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism. The property, now called Veteran’s Wildlife Area, is now open to public hunting and being managed for sustained wildlife habitat.
In addition, Hayden Outdoors will work to bring together private landowners and PF wildlife biologists to help them create and conserve upland habitat by way of the “Private Lands Wildlife Habitat Assistance” program. Efforts to help maximize unused potential wildlife habitat, grow incremental income for private landowners from unused land, and enrolling more lands into existing management programs, such as Corners for Wildlife, are examples of Hayden Outdoors’ efforts to help landowners and the future of upland bird hunting.
“To create a high-level partnership with one of the premier land brokerage companies in the county is a giant step forward for the future of upland wildlife conservation and our hunting heritage,” said Chris Kalis, director of corporate partnerships for Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever. “Not only have they committed financially for increased wildlife habitat and public access, but the opportunities to assist private landowners with landscape-level habitat upgrades has major implications for private lands conservation.
Hayden Outdoors will be featured as a National Sponsor in many of PF and QF marketing mediums, in addition to being featured at the upcoming 2019 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic in Schaumburg, Illinois.
