Women’s Combo Hunter/Bowhunter Classroom Course @ Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center
Dec 15 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

This will be a fun and educational setting for female students who would like to earn their hunter education certificates of completion for both Firearm and Bowhunter. The course will be taught by exciting, dedicated instructors who are eager to share their knowledge and passion about hunting, safety, and ethics in the field.

This course is for girls and women of nearly all ages– participants must be at least 11 years old. However, it is not necessary that youth are accompanied by an adult in the class.

The Ladies and Girls Hunter Education Class provides an opportunity for moms, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, and friends to get together and learn more about an activity that is not only fun, but a great way to enjoy the outdoors and become a part of Nebraska’s conservation heritage. Participants will leave the course with basic knowledge, skills, and hopefully the confidence to move forward as a safe and ethical hunter and recreational shooter. This class will spend plenty of time on the indoor shooting ranges with exceptional instructors offering plenty of hands on opportunities with our shooting equipment.

At one time, hunting was considered more of a “father-son” tradition. However, more fathers than ever are taking their daughters hunting, and more and more women are heading out to the field on their own or with family and friends.

Still, females (16 and older) make up only about 10% of the hunters in the U.S. according to information provided the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2016 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation. Perhaps learning opportunities such as this Ladies and Girls Hunter Education class can help change that.

At the first session, everyone under 19 years of age must give the instructor a signed, completed Parental Release Form (download, print, and sign).

All students under 19 years of age should be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the first session to ensure appropriate information is received on dates, sessions, and additional requirements.
