Nebraska Super Tag Hunting Lottery Winner!

Leo Benes of Firth, Nebraska, is The winner of Nebraska's new super tag hunting lottery.

Benes won the four-species hunting permit on Thursday morning.

Benes, who is also the Battalion Chief for Lincoln Fire and Rescue says he's very excited about winning. He said he signed up for the lottery when he went to apply for a normal deer permit, but accidently applied for the Super Tag! Now that was a great mistake!

He will be allowed to hunt one Elk, one Deer, one Antelope and two Turkeys throughout the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

A total of 1,714 persons entered the lottery says the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and the program raised $42,850 for the commission. The cost of each entry was $25.
