In the Wild with Greg Wagner


BROADCASTING FROM MAHONEY STATE PARK by Greg Wagner

I’ll be broadcasting my crazy, zany, outdoor information-filled Great Outdoor Radio Show on Omaha’s ESPN Radio 1620 AM from Mahoney State Park near Ashland this Saturday morning. I’ll be in the Kiewit Lodge from 9-10 a.m. during the park’s annual fall art show and rib-fest event. Stop by!

 

If you can’t make it to the park for the broadcast, you can listen online, at: www.1620thezone.com

You’ll wanna come by though, and see what hats I’ll be wearing, ha!

Here’s a link for some brief info on the art show and rib-fest: http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/calendar/index.php?&y=2010&m=10&d=02&eventdatetime_id=162

See you out there, broadcasting at the park!

NATIONAL PHEASANT FEST COMES BACK TO OMAHA by Greg Wagner

I’ve been working with some folks on the promotion of the National Pheasant Fest event that is coming back to Omaha’s Qwest Center, January 28-30, 2011. Hunters, pheasant lovers, landowners, resource professionals and others – mark your calendars NOW! Remember what fun we had when Pheasant Fest was held here in January of 2005? Boy, I sure do! The event was held at the Qwest Center and included 325 exhibitor booths. This event had a $2.5 million impact on the city of Omaha! Time to prepare and get pumped up for the return of this big shindig in January!

For those of you asking: What exactly is Pheasant Fest? Well, Pheasant Fest is a spectacular trade show that will focus on wildlife conservation, upland game bird hunting, dog training, and wildlife habitat management and restoration.

In connection with the trade show, Pheasants Forever will hold seminars on habitat improvement, pheasant hunting, shooting sports, wild game cooking, dog training, conservation and lots more! Here’s a link to click to get more information: http://www.pheasantfest.org/

Hunting dogs are a big part of the National Pheasant Fest.

See you there, at the Qwest Center, January 28-30, 2011. Oh and shhh … Nobody tell my wife, I’ll be talking to the hunting dog experts about buying a new pup ….
