Road Trip 2014 logo-003Almost 8,000 Wingshooting USA TV fans have already risen to the challenge in the third annual “Cabela’s Awesome Upland Road Trip … destination Kansas” contest. The sweepstakes is in its final stages, with prize values growing as the Dec. 31 deadline looms.

Fans of the show are asked to outfit host Scott Linden’s Amped travel trailer and his hunting dogs for a 6,500-mile journey across bird country. On the trip, Linden signs copies of his What the Dogs Taught Me and visits fans at Cabela’s stores, and makes future episodes of Wingshooting USA. Fan suggestions ranged from the ridiculous (hot tub for the Amped trailer) to the sublime (a day off and pampering for Linden’s hard working dogs).

Practical suggestions ranged from ammo to electronic dog training collars. A Stack-On gun cabinet and Rough-Tuff dog kennels and storage gear were added enroute due to fan suggestions. Early in the contest, fans also suggested stops along the way, including the Kansas City Cabela’s store and a hunting lodge in South Dakota where Linden dropped by for a meet-greet-hunt. Many entries are accompanied by photos of entrants and their hunting dogs.

Upcoming prizes in the run-up to contest end include a SportDOG Tek GPS collar, Mossberg Silver Reserve shotgun, and $500 Cabela’s dog gear gift card.

Sponsors of the Road Trip included Cabela’s, Kansas Tourism, EverGreen RV’s “Amped” toy hauler trailer, SportDOG and Mossberg.

The most-watched upland bird hunting show in the U.S., Wingshooting USA is the official TV series of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. It is broadcast year-round on seven television networks. More information: www.scottlindenoutdoors.com.

Road Trip 2014 logoYou’ve been very helpful – and creative – in the lead-up to our “Road Trip” … helping find gear for my dogs, customizing the Amped toy hauler trailer, and even picking destinations in Kansas. Now, it’s time to reap the benefits – let’s get together somewhere along the way.

Virtually every stop is a chance to visit, meet Manny and Buddy, talk hunting, and ask questions about birds, dogs and bird hunting. I can’t guarantee a right answer, but will sure try! I’ll sign your copy of my book – and have FREE goodies to give away.

(Speaking of great stuff, enter the Road Trip sweepstakes here, and you could win a Mossberg shotgun, SportDOG Tek GPS collar, or $500 in Cabela’s gear.)

Consider yourself invited to any of the following stops, no purchase or admission fee required – just stop by to say hello. Here’s the schedule so far:

So, where are we?

Heading West after a couple meetings in Kansas City and stopped for some things I couldn’t live without. The question is, which Cabela’s?

Somewhere in Montana …

After a long day in Post Falls, including giving back some of Cabela’s sponsorship dollars at their store, Manny, Buddy and I headed east. Skirting Lake Couer d’Alene, we continued on Interstate 90 until well past dark – racing to a date with 6X Outfitters’ Al Gadoury and some Montana ringnecks.

It was a civilized “Kamp,” as you can see. Can you guess where the Aliner is tonight?

Gotta guess?

Let’s hope you recognize the store … the question is, which one? I’ll ultimately be in Pierre, SD to make some shows but am hunting my way over there from Bend OR. Any guesses?
