LINCOLN, Neb. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Two deer camps for women hunters are being planned by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. Both are scheduled for Jan. 8-10, 2010.

The camps, part of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program, are designed for women of varying experience levels who want to learn more about deer hunting. Participants will take part in all aspects of the hunt. They will be paired up based on experience level to provide informal mentoring opportunities.

The Central Deer Camp will take place near Alda in Hall County along the Platte River. A Season Choice Area 1 permit and Nebraska Habitat Stamp are required. A 2009 stamp may be used.

The Baxter Deer Camp will take place near Milligan in Saline County. A Season Choice Area 20 permit and a habitat stamp are required.

The hunt takes place during the January late antlerless season when no bucks may be taken and only legal firearms may be used. All participants must have proof of successful completion of a hunter education course.

Space is limited. To reserve a spot, contact Aaron Hershberger at (402) 471-6144 or [email protected]
