Lincoln, Neb. -- The 2003 Youth Waterfowl Hunting Season will be Sept. 27-28 and is an excellent time to introduce young hunters to the excitement of waterfowl hunting.

Hunting is part of the American culture and provides a great opportunity for adults to teach kids how to hunt and at the same time to teach them about the tradition of fall hunting.

Conditions in the rainwater basin area have been dry through most of the summer, but recent rains have resulted in dramatic changes in Fillmore and eastern Clay Counties. Some of the other areas also have huntable water and some areas are dry, so a little pre- season scouting may be in order. As usual, reservoirs and ponds should also provide hunting opportunities.

To participate in the Youth Waterfowl Season, hunters must be 15 years old or younger. Resident youth hunters do not need any state or federal permits or stamps, but those ages 12-15 are required to carry a Hunter Education certification card while hunting. Nonresident youths are required to have a 2003 Nebraska youth hunting permit and 2003 Nebraska Habitat Stamp. The season is open for ducks, mergansers, coots and geese. The bag limit is the same as during the regular waterfowl seasons. Youths who are 12 through 15 years must be accompanied by a person at least 18 years old. This adult need not be licensed to hunt. Youths younger than 12 years must be accompanied by a licensed hunter at least 19 years old. The accompanying adult may not hunt waterfowl during the Youth Waterfowl Hunting Season.
