Saint Paul, Minn. – March 12, 2008 – Now entering their second year of successfully partnering with Pheasants Forever (PF), Scag Power Equipment, a Mayville, Wisconsin-based company, has also joined the organization’s quail conservation efforts. Quail Forever (QF) announces Scag Power Equipment as its newest national sponsor.

“We’re extremely impressed with the work Pheasants Forever has done, and know that’s the direction in which Quail Forever is headed,” said Chris Frame, director of marketing and technical services for Scag Power Equipment. “Scag is proud to become a national sponsor of Quail Forever and to support a great game bird that desperately needs our help.”

Pheasants Forever launched Quail Forever in August of 2005 to address the continuing loss of habitat suitable for quail and the subsequent quail population decline. QF chapters promote local, state, and federal conservation programs that help landowners protect environmentally sensitive acres for quail and other wildlife. They also employ the organization’s unique model of empowering local chapters with 100 percent control of the chapters’ locally-raised funds to complete habitat and youth education projects in the chapters’ own communities. In the two years since QF’s inception, over 95 QF chapters have formed in 26 different states.

“Scag Power Equipment is a company that cares about what Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever members care about – conserving pheasants, quail and our hunting heritage forever,” said Greg Emerick, PF/QF’s director of corporate sales, “We thank Scag Power Equipment for their continued commitment to our organization’s mission.”

Scag has been manufacturing commercial power equipment since 1983 and is headquartered in Mayville, Wisconsin, with additional manufacturing facilities in West Bend, Wisconsin, and Greensboro, North Carolina. Their highly productive mowers are built from the ground up using the highest quality design and construction techniques. Scag mowers are proudly manufactured and assembled in the USA and sold throughout North America and 15 other countries around the world. For over two decades, Scag has been regarded as the leader in top-quality commercial-grade mowing equipment.

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are non-profit conservation organizations dedicated to the protection and enhancement of pheasant, quail, and other wildlife populations in North America through habitat improvement, land management, public awareness, and education.  PF/QF has more than 120,000 members in 700 local chapters across the continent.
