The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, along with Pheasants Forever, Inc. and Quail Forever, challenge hunters to complete the Nebraska Upland Slam. Harvest four birds – a sharp-tailed grouse, greater prairie-chicken, ring-necked pheasant and northern bobwhite quail – in Nebraska, and receive an official certificate, Nebraska Upland Slam pin and decal as well as epic bragging rights. Upon submission of the first verified upland bird species harvest, 2020-2021 participants will be entered into monthly drawings for prizes. Additionally, all hunters who complete the slam during the 2020-21 season will be registered to win one of several great prizes including the Grand Prize, Browning Maxus 12-gauge semiautomatic shotgun.
New this season, resident hunters 15 or younger are encouraged to complete the slam to be entered into a separate drawing for a Resident Youth Lifetime Hunt Permit. Additionally, upon the fourth and final bird submission all hunters can acknowledge their hunting dog's achievement by uploading a photo of their dog afield and receive an official "Top Dog" tag and certificate.
All birds must be harvested during the 2020-2021 season. Harvests prior to Sept. 1, 2020 are not eligible for this year’s slam. All submissions must be received by midnight on Jan. 31, 2021 to be eligible toward the Upland Slam
