-- Family muzzleloader deer hunts are planned for this winter near Plattsmouth, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
The Commission and the Nebraska Forest Service have created an opportunity for families wanting to try deer hunting. This is open to two-person teams of one parent or adult and one child. The hunts will take place Dec. 18-20 and Jan. 8-10, 2010, at Horning State Farm.
Participants will receive help from experienced deer hunters and take part in a pre-hunt workshop. Participants must have either a Season Choice Area 21 or youth deer permit. A Habitat Stamp is required of all hunters except residents under age 16. Proof of successful completion of a Hunter Education course is required.
Interested families must submit a completed application no later than 5 p.m. Nov. 30. Contact Heather Weihe at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 471-5662 for an application.
