In 1996, Pheasants Forever developed a program with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission that allows boys and girls ages 12 to 15 who have recently completed a Hunter Safety Education class to attend a “Youth Mentor Hunt.”
Youth enrolling in this program are given instruction on various hunting related topics such as dog training, reloading shot shells, hunter safety, blue rock shooting, how to ask a landowner for permission to hunt, and much more in a one day, mentored setting.
The highlight of the day is an actual pheasant or dove hunt with a mentor and dog handler. This program has been very rewarding and is designed to target those youth that have a strong interest in hunting, but limited opportunities to go hunting.
Since 1996, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever chapters in Nebraska have had over 13,000 youths attend a Youth Mentor Hunt!
Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever in Nebraska are celebrating their 20th Anniversary of Youth Mentor Hunts!
