Quail Forever has announced a special promotion with MOTHER™. At this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas, attendees will be able to join Quail Forever and receive a free MOTHER™ Day Pack compliments of MOTHER™ (retail value of $109).

St. Paul, Minn. – February 2006 – Quail Forever (QF) has announced a special promotion with MOTHER™, a manufacturer of technical hunting packs. At this year's Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, attendees will be able to join Quail Forever at the $30 affiliate membership level and receive a free MOTHER™ Day Pack compliments of MOTHER™ (retail value of $109).

This special offer is limited to SHOT Show attendees on Friday, February 10th only. The promotion will begin at 2PM and run till 4PM at the MOTHERâ„¢ SHOT Show Booth #8929. Supplies of the MOTHERâ„¢ Day Pack are limited to the first 200 new QF members.

“We are very grateful to have MOTHER's™ support of quail conservation and are excited to offer such a great value to SHOT Show attendees,” said Howard Vincent, QF's president and chief executive officer.

“We are pleased to lend our support to such a worthy cause,” added Marty Grabijas, MOTHER™ founder and bird hunting guide. “The future of MOTHER™, and really the entire outdoor industry, lies in two areas – wildlife habitat creation and youth hunter recruitment. Pheasants Forever has over twenty years of success stories on both of those fronts and we are proud to help Quail Forever achieve some of their first successes.”

QF was launched by Pheasants Forever (PF) on August 10, 2005 to help reverse the quail population decline. QF applies the successful Pheasants Forever model of empowering local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100% of their locally raised conservation funds will be spent. QF and PF are the only national conservation organizations that operate through this truly grassroots structure. As a result, grassroots chapter volunteers are able to see the fruits of their efforts locally, while belonging to a larger national organization with a voice on federal and state conservation policy. In the organization's first five months of existence, there are already 29 QF chapters nationwide; eight in Illinois, three each in Kansas, Missouri, and Tennessee, two each in Nebraska and Texas, and one each in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Oklahoma.

“Quail Forever has been embraced whole-heartedly in our first months of existence,” reported Vincent. “The promotion with MOTHER provides our peers in the hunting industry with a great way to support quail conservation and QF, while scoring one of the top technical hunting products on the market.”

MOTHER™ – as in Necessity is the MOTHER™ of Invention – was born out of personal frustration, by hunter and guide Marty Grabijas. MOTHER provides performance-based equipment to hunters who seek the ultimate in technical functionality. The pack being offered in this SHOT Show promotion is the upland-specific Day Pack, Model #105.
