Pheasants Forever Nebraska

Chapter Forms and Information

We are The Habitat Organization

Nebraska Pheasants Forever leads the nation with habitat acre enhancements. Make sure your projects get recognized by filling out the appropriate habitat forms. Habitat recognition is important for your chapter members, donors, and partners.  Help us to identify these projects and celebrate your habitat accomplishments!

Habitat Project Agreement Form
As the “habitat organization” we are committed to establishing and maintaining quality habitat projects. This form documents individual habitat projects (e.g. nesting cover establishment, shrub plantings, food plots, prescribed burning) that are funded by chapters. It is important to record the general location of each habitat project so that we can keep our habitat project maps up-to-date.

Chapter Habitat Summary Report Form
What impact has Pheasants Forever made in your area? What has your chapter accomplished in the past year? Completion of this form allows your chapter to receive recognition for your hard work and it allows Pheasants Forever to accurately report our accomplishments and achievements. You can also complete this form online. Thank you for your help and continued support!

Habitat Signs and Decal Order Form
Custom Habitat Cooperator Sign Order Form
Habitat project signs highlight places where Pheasants Forever has worked in cooperation with private landowners to establish or maintain habitat. Or, perhaps the sign belongs to a passionate supporter. Those bright orange signs are not an open invitation to public hunting. Always ask for permission to hunt on private land.

Supporting Local Habitat Improvements

Pheasants Forever’s no-till drill rental program helps landowners establish and improve habitat. Thanks to grant funding support from the Nebraska Environmental Trust, we have 60+ drills available throughout the state. Please ensure that all of the renter information is filled out during each use. The acres planted, locations, and cover types provide important data for reporting our habitat accomplishments.

Use of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Logos

Our brand identity is the image we present to the outside world. When you display a Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever logo, consider how it aligns with our mission statement and reputation as being the leading upland conservation organization. Consistency is key. Our ability to generate support for conservation depends on the effective use of our logos, images, and messages that form emotional and logical connections with our stakeholders.

For more information, please read the Brand Standards Guide. The guide has links to high-quality logos and images that are available to download.

Banquet and Membership Reporting

Since our founding in 1982, Pheasants Forever’s life-blood has been the dedicated volunteers who give generously of their time to build local chapters and deliver our mission. Banquet and membership reporting help us to  maintain strong accountability in how we deliver our mission so that members and supporters can see the direct results of their contributions.

Youth Mentor Hunt Chapter Challenge

Chapters can earn one or multiple chances to win a grand prize (e.g. a set of four over/under shotguns) by simply contributing to our Youth Mentor Hunt program. All proceeds are used to purchase orange hunting vests or dove hunting belts for our Youth Mentor Hunt participants.
