The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is looking for ladies wanting to take part in one of two “last chance” Deer Camps as part of the Nebraska’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BO-W) program. These Deer Camps will take place during the January antlerless deer season. Both camps are designed for women, of varying experience levels, wanting to learn more about deer hunting, experience the excitement of camp and spend time chasing deer with other like-minded women.
In addition to the appropriate permit, stamp and rifle all participants must have proof of the successful completion of a Hunter Education course, regardless of age. In these deer camps, participants are expected to take part in all aspects of the experience and opportunities that may present themselves while deer hunting. During the hunt, women are paired off based on experience levels to provide informal mentoring opportunities.
These special deer camps are kept small to maximize the fun and camaraderie so space is very limited. To reserve your spot or to gather more information contact Aaron Hershberger at email@example.com asap.
