I’m getting another plug for our series of big game informational meetings that are fast approaching on the calendar. The series of meetings actually kicks off tomorrow night in McCook, NE. We know it’s a busy season, but we’d sure appreciate it if you could to attend one near where you live. We want to visit with you about big game animals, big game hunting and most notably deer and deer hunting in Nebraska. Here’s the news release that my Game and Parks buddy Jerry Kane wrote about the meetings to give you all the particulars. Thanks in advance for going!
