Adult-Only Hunter Education Class for Hunting in Mountains

LINCOLN, Neb. – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has scheduled a hunter education class in Lincoln on March 21 and 22 for adults who will be going out of state this fall to hunt in the mountains, according to Mike Streeter, Nebraska Hunter Education Coordinator.

Streeter said this two-day class is designed for adults who are required to have a firearm hunter education class to hunt in another state meet that requirement, even though they are not required to attend a hunter education class to hunt in Nebraska.

The class also will present a number of topics, among them are using map and compass, GPS systems, speciality hunting implements, survival techniques, getting along with a guide or outfitter, and other skills hunters need to hunt in an extreme environment that aren’t necessary to hunt in Nebraska.

The class will be 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission boating area at the Hunter Education Office in the Northeast Commercial Complex, 4817 N. 56th St., Ste. No. 1. To register go to OutdoorNebraska.org and find the Hunter Education page, click on “available classes”, find class No.1858, then use the registration button on that page. This class is designed for adults over age 18 only. Children will not be able to keep up and probably will not be able to gain certification through this class.
