Yes, tomorrow is a holiday for all of us at the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission.  Make sure you thank a veteran tomorrow!

Thank you all, appreciate everything you, and your families, have done to preserve our freedom!

I am betting most of you have a friend or family member who is a veteran and maybe you can do a little more to show them some appreciation, maybe take them fishing or hunting!

And then the day after tomorrow, Saturday, is another “unofficial” holiday–the opening day of rifle deer season!  For many folks it will be a day of remembering family traditions, the return to “deer camp”, time spent in the field with family and friends.  If that ain’t a holiday, I do not know what is.  Many of you know what I mean, and if you have not heard it already, you will appreciate this song.

Make sure you get plenty of sleep!


I will leave you with a photo I stole from my cousin’s FaceBook page this week.  Thanks cuz!
