Youth bow fishing mentoring programs available

LINCOLN, Neb. – Two bow fishing mentoring programs are available in eastern Nebraska this summer for youth age 10 to 15.

These free programs, hosted by Bowfishers of Nebraska, allow youth to explore the challenge and excitement of harvesting fish with archery gear. They will learn about equipment, safety, regulations, and care for harvested fish, and will shoot from both the shore and a boat. No experience is needed, and equipment is provided.

Space is limited, and registration is required to save a spot.

The first program will be held at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge on May 29, 31 and June 5 and 9. Register at https://www.register-ed.com/events/view/121081. The second program will take place at Ponca State Park on July 5, 12, 19 and 21. Register at https://www.register-ed.com/events/view/121078.
