Being inducted into the Kansas Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Hall of Fame is an honor bestowed on individuals who have done something very special to help achieve the mission of the organization.
Please read about our conservation heroes to learn more about what they have done for pheasant, quail and other wildlife habitat or to promote youth involvement in the mission. Perhaps it will give you some ideas of what you might do. Perhaps you will think of others who deserve this honor, but that have not yet been recognized.
2014 inductees to the Kansas Hall of Fame include the following champions. We will be adding additional biographical information very soon.

Duayne J. Madl Takes Commitment to Conservation to a New Level
The boy wakes to darkness on a winter morning in eastern Kansas. He quickly dresses and heads outside, across the farmyard and into the barn, where he grabs a bucket and makes his way to the parlor. He and his brothers hook milking machines to the Holsteins and carry each bucket to the strainer, twice a day, every day.
