Early bird registration available now for nation’s largest upland hunting & habitat event

Minneapolis, MN – Sept. 24, 2019 – Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever is excited to announce Randy Newberg, one of the nation’s most popular public lands advocates and native Minnesotan, as a featured guest and keynote speaker at the 2020 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic. Tickets are now available for the nation’s premier upland hunting and conservation tradeshow coming to the Minneapolis Convention Center on February 14-16 with presenting partner Federal Ammunition.

Host of the popular Hunt Talk Radio podcast as well as Fresh Tracks and On Your Own Adventures TV shows, Randy Newberg is an avid outdoorsman, writer and television host. Using these platforms to advocate for hunters and public access throughout America, Newberg represents the voice of sportsmen and women at the highest levels of government, while also serving as a volunteer and board member for various hunting and conservation groups. His affinity for upland hunting on public lands – representing a large proportion of Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever members – makes him an ideal keynote for National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic.

“Utilizing its local model, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever has successfully transformed America’s landscape with over 200,000 acres of public lands investments and 18 million acres of impacts since 1982,” explained Newberg. “I look forward to highlighting these investments and the importance of grassroots conservation efforts for protecting America’s hunting heritage in February 2020. Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have dedicated, genuine members at their core, and I look forward to spending a long weekend with them during my homecoming in Minnesota.”
