The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and National Shooting Sports Foundation have launched a statewide marketing campaign to encourage fathers to take their children hunting.

With deer and turkey permits only $5 for youth, and deer and turkey populations plentiful, and hunting opportunities abundant, fall is the perfect time to introduce a son or daughter to hunting.

Game and Parks has developed new Web pages at that detail information about youth hunting in Nebraska. The site also allows adult mentors to register for a free Nebraska upland bird hunt.

"Too often our busy lifestyles discourage youngsters from participating in time-honored traditions such as hunting," said Jeff Rawlinson, assistant division administrator in the Information and Education Division. "Sometimes, you just have to make the best things in life happen."
