The first youth to complete the 2020 Upland Slam was Thayne O’Hare of Cozad. The 11-year-old harvested his pheasant in Custer County, quail and greater prairie-chicken in Phelps County and sharp-tailed grouse in Box Butte County.
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.
The first two seasons of the Upland Slam were a great success, with more than 540 hunters participating, including hunters ranging in age from 9 to 80.
