Youth Upland Game Bird Weekend on WOWT 6 Outdoors

On WOWT 6 Outdoors this week, I’ll be highlighting Nebraska’s two-day youth upland game bird hunting season that will be taking place this the weekend of October 18th & 19th. I’ll be mentioning a few public places not far from Omaha where we at Game and Parks will be releasing adult rooster pheasants for the kids and their mentors to hunt.

As a reminder, my Weekly Outdoor Report airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News on Thursday at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with Greg Ortiz (far left). Greg gets in on the fun of our outdoors-related broadcasts as well!

If you are unable to view the live broadcast of the outdoor report, video replays can be seen after the initial cast here. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, WOWT 6 runs it on Saturdays later in the station’s hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. Tune in, check requirements, and then plan to take your young folks out after a  rooster pheasant or two!
