Indiana Native Covering Hoosier and Bluegrass States for Pheasants Forever


Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have named Indiana native Brian Nentrup as its new regional representative covering Indiana and Kentucky. Nentrup joins “The Habitat Organization” after serving four years as a regional director with the Quality Deer Management Association.

Nentrup will be the primary contact for the 18 Pheasants Forever chapters and 8 Quail Forever chapters in Indiana and the 9 Quail Forever chapters in Kentucky, spearheading the organization’s efforts to expand and increase membership in the two states. Nentrup will work to foster relationships with volunteers, supporters, state agencies, and other private and federal partners with a mutual desire to improve wildlife habitat and awareness of pheasant and quail conservation efforts.

“Brian brings great skills and significant experience. And when you combine that with his passion for making a difference for wildlife, we are optimistic about our ability to impact bird populations, their habitat and our communities,” stated Matt Holland, senior field coordinator with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. “We look forward to Brian working with our network of chapters, partners and donors in growing our organizational impact.”

A lifelong hunter, conservation became Nentrup’s major focus after he was elected president of a south-central Indiana hunting club. As a regional director for the Quality Deer Management Association, he established a track record of customer service and fundraising experience.

A native of Columbus, Indiana, Nentrup earned a B.S. in Communications (Business and Marketing emphasis) from Indiana Wesleyan University. He and his wife, Stephanie, along with their two children, live in Fairland, Indiana. Brian’s bird dog of choice? A twelve year old Weimaraner named “Nick.” He can be reached at (317) 753-4543 or via email.
