THE UWC NORT AMERICAN WATERFOWLERS GRAND SLAM

WHAT IS THE UWC NORTH AMERICAN WATERFOWL GRAND SLAM?

Big Game Hunters have the Super Slam and the record books while Turkey Hunters have the Grand Slam. As waterfowl hunters what do we have? A banded bird every year or two if we are lucky. That is why we have developed The Ultimate Waterfowlers Challenge (UWC). A system to certify and record every species of waterfowl that you harvest over the next 5-20 years. We will track each members list of waterfowl and certify each species on the UWC website.
