The Division of Wildlife Resources has new opportunities waiting for waterfowl hunters thanks to money from the slam program. The waterfowl slam program rewards hunters with special leg bands that can be worn on a lanyard for achieving certain hunting goals. Thanks to the program’s popularity, $30,000 has been generated in the last three years, reports the DWR, and those funds are being used for more on-the-ground habitat projects that help waterfowl and other birds. “Every penny that’s raised goes directly back to helping the birds,” shares game bird coordinator Blair Stringham. “What’s neat about the program is that for every dollar a hunter pays to join, the federal government gives us three dollars in return.” To learn more about the waterfowl slam, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov.
