Welcome, the old expression, “you cannot catch any fish if your line is not in the water” applies here. In order to improve wildlife habitat for the wild quail, dove, deer, turkey, rabbits or song birds you have to get involved and learn what it takes and maybe grab a shovel or jump on a tractor with us.
Your involvement, and that of your family, starts with a membership and can grow into everything you want it to be. By signing up as a member you will receive the Whistle Call and other important news automatically. When signed up, you’ll receive a confirmation email that you must respond to which activates your subscription.
Caution: This is a passion, learning to help wildlife is known to be very addictive, and gratifying and can become a lifestyle, worthy of significant photography, a connection with the land for you and your family that God gave us all. Enjoy the experience.

That is what we are all about. Finishing 2011, our numbers show the $4.82 million dollars representing QUWF in fiscal year 2011, less than 5% was used for admin and support costs. That is a strong statement of staying the course, honoring your public trust in us and that the super majority of the money stayed at the local level and “turned-the-dirt” through our chapters and members.
In 2012 our QUWF national board expanded to twice its size now including representation from each region of the country and they approved adding two more Regional Director positions going forward consistent with the meeting theme “It’s Time to Grow”.
I truly believe we are the best not-for-profit organization in controlling dollars and ensuring we never forget why we are here, for our chapters and members to work on the preservation of upland wildlife habitat and population recovery.
We do need your continued support, though we stretch every penny as far as we can, without your continued contributions, we cannot get the job done.
Please, consider now an additional tax deductible donation to QUWF and help get a new member!
I know it is never easy, but I want you to know our staff is totally dedicated to our mission, our members and our chapters second to none, and gives all it can, all the time.
Every penny, every penny counts, thank you for the support of upland wildlife and our mission to preserve it for our sons, daughters and grandchildren.
Truly yours in conservation, Thank You,
Craig A. Alderman, Executive Director
We have a great team at QUWF, talented, dedicated and willing to go the extra mile to solve challenges of our chapters. While having a great time knowing we are supporting a national structure of chapters and volunteers, we know we are making a difference. Through our RDs and high energy staff, we provide support 24/7 because volunteers may have different hours to support conservation than a standard 8 to 5 structure. Our National Office is proudly located in rural Buffalo, Missouri and we tend to look in our local area for national staff, but that is not to say we would not entertain a qualified individual from anywhere in the U.S.
We require our staff to possess degrees in wildlife, forestry, agricultural, with some journalism positions or have extensive experience applicable to the open job. All staff members must be very proficient at the latest versions of Microsoft Office Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Adobe. Some positions may require Photoshop, and Publisher knowledge and MAC systems for newsletter, newspaper and magazine creation. All Directors, the Chief Biologist and the Office General Manager report to the Executive Director, all other positions report to the Office General Manager.
Going in, our main purpose above all is to support the efforts and guide the direction of our chapters. In our business model, they, our chapters and members, make it happen, they “get-in-the-truck”™ for conservation and “turn-the-dirt”™ with habitat projects, outreach and youth programs that literally save our hunting and wildlife heritage.
The road warriors and backbone of QUWF. We develop territories for our Regional Directors; called RDs, based on the number of working chapters and members in the designated area he or she will cover, to offset the expense of the position.
The QUWF RD, based in his/her territory, must have a wildlife, forestry or agricultural degree or significant experience in the conservation field as a regional director/chapter manager. They must have a true passion for our great outdoors and want to make a difference through the chapters and volunteer members they will work with. RDs must have an above average ability to use Microsoft Office to include Outlook, Excel, Word, and especially PowerPoint having very good computer skills including the latest versions of Adobe. The love of hunting and the shooting sports goes without saying, including a passion for our canine buddies afield. High ethics, a bubbling-outgoing personality and a strong moral and Christian compass help round out the personality a QUWF RD represents with a strong dose of patience.
An RD delivers great support to our chapters, is a coach, teacher, problem solver, mediator, superb communicator, banquet Emcee, silent and live auction arranger, banner guru, habitat planner, photographer, writer, budget manager and that is in his or her morning hours. The RD also searches out state and federal grants for his region and chapters working with any and all sources of funding and helping write and execute grants. The RD does what it takes to support the chapters and QUWF, it is definitely not an 8 to 5 job, and like a good country doctor, is “on call” when the need arises to the chapters.
The manager of his or her territory, the QUWF RD has the management responsibility of up to some 35 to 40 chapters and the State Councils, which by definition, have the same requirements as a chapter under the 501(c)(3) rules and regulations.
The RD helps build and manage the regional QUWF Habitat Improvement Teams™ and seed programs in concert with national sponsors, national staff and the local chapters. “Turnin’-the-Dirt” ™ is what we do!
The RD is the eyes and ears of QUWF in the field helping to build on chapter success, overcome challenges and “Turn-the-Dirt”™ for upland wildlife fully coordinating with our national staff. All RDs report directly to the QUWF Director of Chapter Development with a dotted line to the Executive Director of QUWF. This is a road warrior, not an office hound.
