The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is looking for young hunters, interested in bowhunting for big game to take part in the Mentored Youth Archery Hunt Program (MYAHP).

The program pairs young hunters, 12 to 17 years old, with qualified bowhunter education instructors for pre-season scouting, tree stand placement, and hunting during the entire 2008 archery deer season.

"MYAHP is designed for individuals who want to learn what it takes to be a safe, responsible and successful bowhunter, but may not have the resources or means to do so," said Aaron Hershberger, the Commission’s hunter outreach coordinator.

Participants in MYAHP must be certified in Nebraska Bowhunter Education and complete an application/parental release form which is available by calling (402) 471-6144.
