Nebraska invites hunters to upland bird hunting challenge
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska is inviting hunters to an upland bird hunting challenge.
The Nebraska Upland Slam encourages hunters to try to kill a ring-necked pheasant, sharp-tailed grouse, greater prairie chicken and northern bobwhite. The challenge is sponsored by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Pheasants Forever, Inc., and Quail Forever.
Those who complete the Nebraska Upland Slam will receive a certificate and pin. Those who complete the challenge during the 2018-19 season will also be registered to win one of several prizes, including a Browning Silver 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun, 65-gallon high-efficiency cooler, an award-winning Pheasants Forever print, and other prizes.
