Bow and Firearm Hunter Safety Classes:

  • Hunter Education is required for anyone who 12 to 29 years old who wishes to hunt in Nebraska with a firearm or bow.

Many surrounding states require Hunter Education for most out-of-state hunters. The Lincoln Izaak Walton League carries a strong tradition of investing in our future to enhance our rich hunting heritage. With its up-to-date facilities and large clubhouse, the Chapter is the perfect site for teaching the Nebraska Hunter Education Program. Since 1974, Hunter Education has been responsible for saving many lives while at the same time enhancing the ethics of our hunting sports.

Maintained by volunteers, Hunter Education is taught each year at the Lincoln Ike's. Classes are generally taught in the spring and fall. Classes can be located on the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s website at outdoornebraska.org and clicking on the “EDUCATION” and then “Hunter Education” links.

You can also go to www.huntsafenebraska.org which will take you directly to the Hunter Safety web page. All classes have limited seating and require pre-registration.

Youth Day

Each year the Ike's host a youth orientation day which introduces area boys and girls to various shooting sports (shotguns, rifles, black powder rifles and archery) and a session on wildlife conservation. The programs generally starts at 9 a.m. and ending at approximately 3:00 p.m. The program is limited to 30 kids ranging in age from 12 to 15.

Check the Ike’s calendar for more information.
