For immediate release:
The Emporia chapter of the QUWF working in cooperation with the Flint Hills Chapter of the QUWF would like to announce the merger of the two groups. Effective immediately these chapters, who have for years worked closely on conservation, youth and habitat projects, will form one entity.
There are no plans to change the overall goals or current project plans throughout the Flint Hills region and it is the belief of the committee members of both groups that the efforts of QUWF as an organization will greatly benefit from this merger.
For more information on current project plans, membership or sponsor opportunities or you just want to know more about the QUWF please contact Chris Grant, Kurtis Meierhoff, Chris Myers, or Phil Taunton for more information.
Our 2015 annual Banquet will be Saturday, February 21 at the Morris County Fair Building.
QUWF……Formed in 2009, the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation, Inc™ (QUWF), based in Buffalo, Missouri, a rural community whose agricultural roots and moral compass reflect the core of QUWF, was organized to better focus efforts, donated dollars and partnerships on immediate and positive habitat projects to “Turn-The- Dirt“©™ for all upland wildlife.

Fletcher Scott, retired school teacher, outdoor writer, craftsman and hunter education instructor and my first cousin “Jack of all Trades” and master of most of them, Maron McConnell will join us on the show. Fletcher will give us the low down on the history of quail hunting in Alabama and their decline in numbers.
Maron and I display his talent in making serving trays out of native pine he got from the old Russell Mills “Sportswear” factory in Alexander City, Alabama. Slow growing wood, showing the tree rings in tight succession makes for a stronger, higher quality wood and better tray.
Squealers or fiddlers are small channel cat and make a squealing, croaking sound when you take them off the hook. The skies cleared and we were able to spend an enjoyable afternoon on Lake Martin, squealer fishing!
More enjoyment came when we sat down to a traditional southern fish dinner of hush puppies, cole slaw, fried fish and French fries. Cousin Faye’s home made jellies and relishes were so good they made my lips fall in love!
