His skillset is well-suited to provide a high level of customer service as Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever continues its mission for quality habitat and public access.”
A Missouri native, Day graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fisheries and Wildlife in the spring of 2017. Day comes to Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever with four years of habitat management experience as a former natural resources technician serving in numerous capacities with the Missouri Department of Conservation. A self-starter at the core, Day founded Addicted Media Productions in 2017 and served as an outdoors photographer/videographer before taking the leap to join “The Habitat Organization.”
“I am excited for the opportunity to work alongside Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever volunteers in Kansas and Missouri while sharing my similar passions for conservation, upland traditions, and hunting heritage,” stated Trevor Day.
