A Hunter’s Role in Wildlife Conservation: Where Nebraska Sits Today

February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Over the past 100 years, several key pieces of legislation have established what is today known as the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. Hunters play a key role in that model, both as a method of wildlife management and as one of the primary funders of state fish and wildlife agencies. The shift in use of firearms and ammunition for recreational target shooting, as well as the decline of hunter numbers in certain demographics, put hunter recruitment, retention and reactivation at the forefront of many agencies plans.
Join Hunter Nikolai, the Hunter Education Coordinator for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, for a talk on the status of hunters in Nebraska and initiatives established to ensure hunting remains relevant in Nebraska into the future.
Hunter is the Hunter Education Coordinator for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, previously working as the Nebraska Hunting and Shooting Sports Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation Coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation. He grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin where he learned to hunt and fish from his father before earning his bachelor’s degree in wildlife ecology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Hunter lives in Hickman, NE with his wife Tammy and newborn son Augie!
