LINCOLN, Neb. – The Passing Along the Heritage program mentored youth hunting sites may now be reserved.
Lake Wanahoo, in Saunders County, has seven sites totaling 1,067 acres available for mentored youth hunting. In Buffalo, Cass, Cherry, Johnson and Lancaster counties, there are nearly 800 additional acres of PATH lands available across six sites.
PATH is an online reservation-based program that provides Nebraska youth and their mentors access to hunt on private lands and selected public lands. Only youth under the age of 18 may hunt on this land. The mentor is there to help the youth and ensure a safe hunting experience.
To locate and reserve a site as well as and obtain a permission slip, visit OutdoorNebraska.org/PATH using the Internet Explorer browser. A mentor must have a permission slip at all times of the youth hunt. Each mentor is only allowed up to five site reservations during the 2021-2022 hunting seasons.
The program is made possible by a partnership between the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and its partners, including the Lower Platte North Natural Resources District, National Audubon Society and Nebraska private landowners.
