WAYNE – Youth between the age of 11-15 years old are invited to Izaak Walton Lake for the 19th annual Youth Mentor Hunt this weekend.
Scheduled for Sunday, October 14 the hunt will start at 11:30 a.m. from Ike’s Lake with a hot dog lunch.
Pre-registration is required for youth who have successfully completed a Nebraska Game and Parks Hunter Safety Course. The Youth Mentor Hunt will provide an opportunity for youth and adults to learn the importance of wildlife habitat, farm safety and having fun in the great outdoors.

Each participant will get a hunter vest, hat and a chance to win a shotgun at the Pheasants Forever Banquet while having a mentor with them throughout the afternoon.
