Reminder of Change to Bowhunter Education

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reminds hunters that changes in Nebraska law now require them to be certified in bowhunter education if they hunt big game with a crossbow and are ages 12 through 29.

Hunters ages 12 and 29 who hunt deer, antelope, elk or bighorn sheep with bow and arrow or a crossbow must carry with them proof of certification of a bowhunter education course.

In addition, hunters ages 12 through 29 who hunt anything with a firearm or air gun must carry with them proof of certification of a firearm hunter education course.

To find hunter and bowhunter education classes in Nebraska, visit HuntSafeNebraska.org.
