The PF Ringnecks Program is dedicated to introducing youth to hunting, shooting sports and outdoor conservation through youth events, education, community service and cooperation with both governmental and non-governmental partnerships. Through a variety of programs, youth will gain knowledge, learn skills and develop a land ethic necessary to be responsible hunters and conservationists. As they grow up, they can in turn pass on the outdoor traditions of their youth to future generations.
Ringnecks is an extension of the vision of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever to start a locally driven, nationally led conservation organization that will ensure continuing the tradition of upland game hunting. By recruiting and mentoring young hunters and conservationists, local chapters will be able to develop the volunteers of tomorrow that will be needed to carry on their work. As members' ages increase and more and more people move away from rural lifestyles, it will be more important than ever to recruit a strong volunteer base.
Ringnecks is open to any young person (age 18 and under) interested in the outdoors and conservation. You do not have to be a hunter.
