Bucks for Gifts

Today is Black Friday, the big shopping day to kick off the holiday season, tomorrow is Small Business Saturday encouraging folks to holiday shop at small businesses, and then Monday is Cyber Monday the largest online shopping day of the year.  I am here at home blogging (before the Husker/Hawkeye football game) while my wife is working at The Nebraska Medical Center and my daughter Emma is still out shopping after pulling an all-nighter going after those tremendous deals on holiday gift items at various stores for the family.
Well,  Emma, the best deal for ‘dear old’ Dad here, the all-around Nebraska outdoor enthusiast (who has tons and tons of gear), is bucks. No, no, not THOSE bucks or THOSE bucks — a booklet or two of Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks, that’s what!
These are #1 on my Christmas gift list and I think they should be on yours, too! Listen, Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks gift certificates are soooo cool because they can be used to purchase (or help purchase) virtually anything Nebraska Game and Parks Commission-related from outdoor permits & stamps to NEBRASKAland magazine subscriptions and merchandise to NE state park campsite & cabin rentals, plus a lot more!
The Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks come available in $25.00 booklets with $5.00 certificates. Purchase your Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks by clicking the link here. Or, stop and see us at any Game and Parks Commission Office or Service Center to buy a book of them such as at our office in Omaha at 8495 Frederick Street.
All of you folks know that I spend tons of time outside here in the Cornhusker State. I think I’ll put my Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks toward the purchase of my 2015 NE outdoor permits and stamps. What will you be buying with your Nebraska Game and Parks Bucks?
Happy holidays to you and your family! See you out there, hunting in this festive season with friends and family, most definitely!
