Youth Hunts

Photo of Kids HuntThe Youth Hunts are those hunts that are formed with the focus of full-time students attending.  All fees apply but are significantly discounted.  They are open to the public with only a few conditions.  Those conditions are:

  1. If the youth has a special need that they must provide the assistance required or the qualified individual that will furnish those special needs.  Certification and licensing of the individual assisting must match or exceed the needs of the special needs child for the child to attend.

  2. Applicable lodge fees must be paid in advance or scholarship must be arranged and approved in writing from Lincoln Youth Sports one week before the hunt is to take place.  (See Lodge Fees for more information.)

Safety Is Paramount

Youth attending must be at least 8 years of age.  All youth may carry a gun but must have the Nebraska Game & Parks Hunter Safety Certification to load the gun along with an adult member present at all times.  Ducks Galore Lodge safety requirements are stricter than general hunting guidelines and must be adhered to or the hunting privilege will be revoked for part or all of the remainder of the hunt.  Loaded guns may NEVER be taken into the Lodge.
