“I grew up in southeast Nebraska, quail country, and came to hunting age in the 1950s… To hunt pheasants, Dad, his hunting friends, and their sons would head to Nuckolls County on opening day, a three-hour drive from home. It was those trips that have made me a lifelong pheasant hunter. Dad loved quail hunting and dining on quail. I fell for the ring-necked pheasant, the stately ‘King of Game Birds.’” —Lonnie Shafer
