Take the ultimate mixed-bag challenge

Nebraska is the mixed-bag capital of the Plains — and it’s time to get out and discover how true that is. Aim to complete the Upland Slam this year, a challenge to harvest a mixed-bag of four upland bird species.

Bag a sharp-tailed grouse, greater prairie-chicken, ring-necked pheasant and northern bobwhite quail in Nebraska, and the Slam is yours. Successful hunters will be registered to win one of several great prizes including the grand prize, a Dickinson Arms Hunter Light 28-gauge over/under shotgun.

You don’t have to complete the Slam to win prizes, either; submit at least one harvest and you’ll be automatically entered into monthly prize drawings sponsored by Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever.

For additional details, see our website. Have fun — and don’t forget to grab snapshots of your harvests so you can enter!
