Welcome to Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation, Inc™

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 upland wildlife.

From the beginning we wanted to guide the thousands of wildlife habitat conservationists we represented to a new direction, one of solid focus of local projects, outreach and involvement. Like never before, people want to be involved in wildlife habitat work on their own lands and in their communities and spend the money they raise.

It’s fun, educational and something the entire family can benefit from especially when they see the results in plant growth, critters returning and song birds singing, all from the work they did. QUWF wants members to get involved locally, raise the dollars and spend it on their projects.

You are about to consider joining thousands of others like yourself who share a passion and respect for our great outdoors. We have a great commitment to help in preserving one of our national treasurers, our upland wildlife and it’s critical habitat in your local area as well as nationally. It is the next step!

Come on in, stay awhile and take a gander at some of the things QUWF has to offer!! Like all good Huntin’ closets, there are items of interest, things we just plain found under the old boots, and things you might just get a good laugh from but we will try to keep it a little more organized for our members.

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.

We list these properties as they have expressed support in habitat management with upland game population recovery and actively promote the hunting heritage. These Preserves and Lodges are proud members of the QUWF organization, and in most cases, their owners are actively involved with their local QUWF chapters. Read More
