Nebraska: Nice Spring Turkey Hunting!

The Nebraska Tourism Commission announced this week that it approved a new brand campaign, entitled: “Nebraska Nice.” This campaign emphasizes one of Nebraska’s strongest assets – us, it’s people. However, “Nebraska Nice” has a two-fold meaning.  It’s not only about we-Nebraskan’s being nice to our visitors and to each other, as we are, but it’s also a reference to the “nice moments” that make the best vacations memorable and special.  It’s about that special moment that is talked about for years and years to come. Here’s a short promotional video for the new campaign.

So, with that information in mind, I’ve added a few more words to the new brand campaign for this spring. My version is, “Nebraska: Nice Spring Turkey Hunting!” What do you think?

Nebraska is a destination state for spring wild turkey hunters with birds in all 93 counties, long seasons, statewide hunting (no units), and affordable permits (especially for youth), plus there is no minimum age restriction on hunting the wild turkey.  Let me tell you, not many outdoor experiences can compare with a wild turkey hunt in the spring of the year here in the Cornhusker State. I know, I spend lots of time in the field! In fact, I bagged my third and last bird for this spring season today! Take a look at this big, hefty Husker Gobbler!
