Take someone new hunting this season
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission encourages hunters to take someone new hunting with them this season. Whether it’s a child, grandchild, spouse or friend, the new Take ‘Em Hunting campaign challenges hunters to share their love of the outdoors with someone either new to the sport or who hasn’t hunted in a few years.
Simply go to oudoornebraska.gov/takeemhunting and take the pledge to introduce or reintroduce someone to hunting. Those who take the pledge receive a sticker or pin.
Then, when you take someone hunting, simply submit a photo of yourself with the newbie, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for various prizes, including Scheels and Cabela’s gift cards, a Nebraska state park stay, hunting gear and the grand prize – a camo John Deere utility vehicle.
The campaign runs through the end of turkey season in May.
