In 1982, as a result of intensified farming practices, pheasant habitat in the state of Minnesota was on the decline. Pheasants Forever began in Saint Paul Minnesota as a response to the decline of pheasant numbers in the state. Pheasants Forever was created to return those grassland acres back into wildlife habitat.
On March 7, 1982, Dennis Anderson, published an article regarding the state of grassland habitat in Minnesota. After the article appeared, Anderson received over 100 written responses and 50 phone calls, voicing concerns for the state of upland habitat and the state's upland game bird. This article was the begging of the concept of Pheasants Forever and shortly after, Anderson and some friends established Pheasants Forever.
The first Pheasants Forever banquet was held April 15, 1983 at the former Prom Center on University Ave in St. Paul. Famed waterfowler and outdoors writer Jimmy Robinson along with over 800 other concerned outdoors people attended. Robinson presented two $1,000 checks to the organization, one from him and one from the Robert Naegele Sr.
The keynote speaker at the inaugural Pheasants Forever banquet was Gov. Rudy Perpich. Gov. Perpich later signed the state’s first pheasant stamp bill.To date, the state pheasant stamp has raised over $14.6 Million for pheasant habitat and development on private and public lands, and for public land acquisition.
