Hug an Angler

OK, this is a commercial about Colorado, I know it is hard for me too, but in spite of that, watch it, it is funny and it makes an excellent point!

Now, let’s go beyond Colorado, and bring it home to Nebraska.

There have been economic studies that have shown that hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation in Nebraska could be even bigger if we used some of our natural resources in a different way.  Yes, I am even suggesting that in some cases water may be even more valuable if more of it was available for fish & wildlife and outdoor receation!  I realize that is a radical idea and way too deep to consider with the weekend on the horizon, but think about it while you spend some time on the water this weekend!
