Developing More Hunters and Anglers N ebraska Game and Parks tracks the success of the program, usage and the likelihood of youth to hunt or fish after winning a permit. "The half-price youth lifetime permit drawing is a huge success at both banquets, and I cannot explain how excited the kids and parents are when their name is drawn. I would again like to thank you and your staff for offering this program and being so generous with giving me two permits for each event. I have been a volunteer for RMEF and DU for the past 10 years and a hunter safety instructor for the past 12 years. I can say that I have not seen as much interest in the future of Nebraska hunting as I have seen in the past five years, as our banquets are packed with kids and our classes are over flowing with students for Hunter Education. Whatever is being done to preserve this legacy, it is working, so thanks again." 75% > of youth purchase multiple big game permits* * 25% are female Statistics show that as youth winners age the more likely they are to hunt and fish, and buy permits and stamps. ~ Neal Kratochvil, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation 5
