Des Moines, Iowa –(Ammoland.com)– If you own land anywhere in the country, you can receive free land-use management consultation at Pheasants Forever’s National Pheasant Fest 2010. The Landowner Habitat Help Room, presented by Best Buy & Geek Squad, will feature state-of-the-art technology and is free with paid admission to the show. National Pheasant Fest runs February 26-28 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

Thanks to Best Buy, the official Technology Partner of National Pheasant Fest 2010, the Landowner Habitat Help Room will offer a dozen work stations featuring large-screen monitors providing a detailed look at each piece of property. Accompanied by a trained Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever biologist, or partnering biologist from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, landowners will be educated on ways they can improve their acres for wildlife and even what local, state, and federal conservation programs they qualify for enrollment.

“Iowa pheasants are in dire need of some positive habitat news when you look at the string of wet springs, snowy winters, and massive CRP losses across the state,” explained Bob St.Pierre, Pheasants Forever’s Director of Marketing & Public Relations. “The Landowner Habitat Help Room is one of the many ways we hope to make Pheasant Fest the focal event for turning Iowa’s habitat needs into new acres.”

With the most current streaming data available, the Landowner Habitat Help Room will offer topographic and aerial maps on any piece of property in the entire country. All you need to do is:

  • Attend National Pheasant Fest 2010 and visit the Landowner Habitat Help Room inside HyVee Hall.
  • Bring the legal description of your property (township, range, and section) or the ability to pinpoint that property’s exact location on the map.
  • That’s it! You’ll leave with a free wildlife habitat management plan for your land.

Landowners have seen the value of the Landowner Habitat Help Room at National Pheasant Fest, as more than 1,000 of them have taken advantage of this service at past shows, leading to over 65,000 habitat acres that have been evaluated for management recommendations by Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever wildlife biologists during Pheasant Fest events since 2005.
