Des Moines, Iowa –-( It’s open season for all upland, waterfowl, small game and big game hunters at Pheasants Forever’s National Pheasant Fest 2010.

The event, being held February 26-28 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, will feature a mixed bag of hunting how-to’s at the Hunter Help Room presented by Cabela’s.

“National Pheasant Fest will have the top-names in outdoor gear, apparel and firearms exhibiting at the show, and once you’ve got the gear, you need to know how to use it,” said Bob St.Pierre, Pheasants Forever’s Director of Marketing and Public Relations.

How-to seminars at the Hunter Help Room will run on-the-hour through the entire three-day weekend. Highlighted presenters include:

Parker Gun Collectors Association – Using Classic American Double Guns for Upland Birds
Side by Side upland game guns made by the top makers – Parker, L C Smith, Ithaca, A H Fox and the Winchester Model 21. Come learn and put your hands on – yes, fingerprints allowed! – some of the finest firearm models ever crafted. “They are useful articles, well made and in upper grades, artistically engraved,” says Bruce Day, associate editor for Parker Pages magazine, the official publication of the Parker Gun Collectors Association.

Barnie Calef – World Class Calling to put Ducks and Geese in Your Bag
Cedar Rapids’ own Barnie Calef will present Friday and Saturday. A Big Foot Pro Staffer and member of Drake’s Waterfowl Systems Elite Team, Calef was the first person to ever win back-to back-World Duck Calling Championships and is one of only five callers to have won three world titles.
