NOTICE: Because the health and safety of our volunteer instructors and the public is our highest priority, the Nebraska Hunter Education program has temporarily suspended classroom courses and Hunt Safe Sessions to limit people gathering. We appreciate your understanding at this time. If you require certification prior to 7/01, please take our online-only course here using code netvfy4st58p19. We have temporarily lowered the age restriction to allow students ages 11 and up to complete the online-only course and receive certification. The Apprentice Exemption Certificate is still available as well and we encourage the use of these options. Please contact Jackson Ellis at [email protected] or call (402) 471-6134.
