Hunters Helping the Hungry on WOWT 6 Outdoors

I’ll be highlighting the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Hunter’s Helping the Hungry (HHH) Program on my Weekly TV Outdoor Report airing on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News this evening! I’ll be encouraging licensed deer hunters in Nebraska to support this wonderful program that helps folks less fortunate. HHH is funded completely by donations from the public. The program pays for the processing of whole field-dressed deer that hunters donate at any participating HHH deer processor.  The ground venison then is distributed to local food banks and non profit organizations, cooked in …

Turkey Hunt on WOWT 6 Outdoors!

On my Weekly WOWT 6 News Outdoor Report, while you’re watching some neat video of wild turkeys, I’ll be verbalizing why you – the hunter of any game species – should consider buying a turkey permit this fall in Nebraska and then taking to the field after a couple of birds. One of the main reasons for going turkey hunting in the fall is that it presents a wonderful opportunity to take a youth outside. He or she would really enjoy a 2015 …

Plant the Plot, Abandon the Bait!

As a longtime hunter, landowner and natural resources professional, I still just don’t get why some hunters feel the need to bait areas with artificially made materials/substances to bring game animals in to a particular area to be harvested within the confines of our laws/regulations (for info on Nebraska’s new baiting laws/regulations with reference to hunting, click here.) Why? Is it because it involves minimal effort and is cheap? Is it because you saw the flashy advertisement for the product …

Don’t be Confused by Moose when Hunting

With moose being reported throughout the Panhandle in recent months, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is urging hunters this fall to be certain of their target before taking a shot. Moose can be similar in appearance to other big game animals. Elk hunters especially will want to study game closely before firing a shot or releasing an arrow. Since this spring, moose have occasionally been reported at locations from the western edge of the Panhandle eastward to Bridgeport and …

Crossing the Goal Line with Online Hunter Education

Anyone who has kids knows things can get a little hectic in the fall. My son Sawyer was eligible for hunter education last year, but the limited offerings in the Chadron area didn’t fit into his schedule. Right or wrong, his obligation to his youth football team took precedence to devoting two Saturdays to hunter education – yes, at least in our Nebraska family, the football schedule is on a short list of things that can trump hunting and fishing. …
