Nebraska’s great outdoors

Like many Nebraskans, I enjoy hunting and fishing, and these activities have instilled in me an enduring love for the outdoors. There’s no better way to take in the beauty of Nebraska, whether it’s on a turkey hunt in the Pine Ridge or spending a quiet evening fishing at a community pond. Hunting and fishing are relaxing ways to unplug from the work week, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with friends and family. While hunting and fishing, I have met Nebraskans from throughout the state, all bound together by appreciation of our state’s natural resources.

This month, on September 28th, Nebraska will join the nation in celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day. This is an important day across the United States, but it has special significance in Nebraska. Hunting and fishing are important elements of our rich outdoor heritage. Families have hunted and fished together for generations. For numerous Nebraskans, hunting and fishing remain ways to put food on the table, while creating treasured memories in the process.
