Our Wolf Creek property will be pheasant country now and for future pheasant hunters
Pheasants Forever and Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks has collaborated on through their conservation easement program to ensure our Wolf Creek property will be managed for pheasant habitat now and forever. In late 2020 Pheasants Forever completed a 1,200 acre conservation easement project with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks on our Wolf Creek property. This project took 4 years to complete and would not have been completed without the dedication of several Pheasants Forever staff and more importantly several Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks professionals keeping this project moving forward over all those years. In addition to protecting these 1,200 acres of prime pheasant habitat this conservation easement helped cement the legacy of all our Montana chapters’ vision to purchase and manage property as high quality pheasant habitat for future pheasant hunters. The financial resources provided to Pheasant Forever by Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks allowed us to pay off a land loan on another Pheasants Forever property in Montana, the Teton property, which will allow us to pursue other key acquisitions, and equally critical for our conservation efforts in Montana we also used funding from this project to establish foundational funding for the Forever Stewardship program in Montana. The Forever Stewardship program will be crucial for Pheasant Forever to meet the second part of our vision for our properties in Montana, which is to ensure we manage our properties to provide the highest quality habitat for pheasants in Montana and provide a place where future generations of hunters can enjoy the beauty of Montana’s pheasant county. All this is possible through the incredible efforts of our chapters and our partners like Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks.
