Youth Shotgun Turkey Season Featured on WOWT 6 Outdoors

Nebraska’s youth spring shotgun wild turkey hunting season will be featured on my Weekly Outdoor Report airing on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News LIVE this Thursday evening at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with Ross Jernstrom!  I’ll be giving you the primary details of the season, which opens this Saturday (April 11th), and emphasizing that the permit price for a youth turkey permit is only $5.00!


I’ll also be encouraging adult hunters to share what they know by taking a youth out turkey hunting. Spring wild turkey hunting is a thrilling and a wonderful way to experience nature. It will be time well spent, trust me!



Don’t forget, if you’re unable to view the live version of the report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast at this link. The outdoor report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, WOWT 6 runs it on Saturdays later in the station’s hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. Thanks for watching!
