Game & Parks: Donate hunting gear

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting donations of new and used hunting clothing and gear to be used in the mentored youth hunting program.

Each year, hundreds of youth take part in the mentored hunts across Nebraska. But many of them don't have access to the appropriate clothing and gear.

The commission is seeking camouflage and blaze-orange hunting gear to be loaned out to those participants. Accepted donations include, but are not limited to, insulated bibs, parkas/insulated coats, hooded sweatshirts, insulated boots, shooting sticks, game calls, gloves, facemasks and new wool socks. The commission cannot accept tree stands, safety harnesses, firearms or ammunition.

Donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday during business hours through Jan. 10 at Game and Parks offices in Kearney, Lincoln and North Platte.
