    Turkey season is right around the corner, and as a way to give back to our association, one of our members has offered his turkey leases up for auction! All proceeds go directly to the NSTA! The generous donation comes from Bill Harmon of Basset NE. Bill has a couple of leases totaling around 800 acres in North Central Nebraska. The hunting area is made up of timber/creek bottom/ and pasture land with cornfields nearby. The specifics of the hunt would be worked out between the buyer and Bill, but he said it would be a 3 day deal and could either be self guided or semi guided, depending on what the purchaser wanted. Here is the good part, this will be a two bird hunt, but if you were interested in doing this, and want to get your kids in on it, Bill will allow an additional 2 birds to be taken by youth hunters (kids under age of 16)!
    Spring turkey season opens March 25 for archery and April 13 for shotgun (youth shotgun opens April 6) and all close May 31. Nonresident turkey permits are $90 for and $5 for nonresident youth!

    Keeping in mind this hunt could be good for up to 4 turkeys in a "destination" location, and all the proceeds go back to our state association, lets start the bidding at $250! Bidding to close at 5:00 p.m. central time Feb. 19 2014

    Will work out payment details with the winner upon completion of the auction.

    Here are a couple photos Bill supplied me with.
