On January 17, 2015 the Big Game Conservation Association held their 1st Annual Sportsmen’s Night in Lincoln at the Pla Mor Ballroom. The evening was quite the success, with attendance around 175 patrons coming out to meet Special Guest Mark Luster, and to take part in live auction bidding and raffle drawings for some great items. With such a great turnout, the BGCA hopes to continue having an annual Lincoln banquet. Their mission is to ensure the future of Nebraska’s big game species (Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Antelope & Mountain Lion), their habitat and our hunting heritage through targeted education, research and management partnerships at the grass-roots level and beyond. All money raised at the BGCA events stays in Nebraska and they have already completed two respectable projects with a third project in the planning stages. All work has been in conjunction with Nebraska Game and Parks and the Lower Platte NRD. To find out more information on the completed projects, upcoming projects, and how to get involved, please visit www.biggameconservationassociation.com. Membership is open to all who want to improve and increase the management and conservation of Nebraska’s big game resources for current and all future generations. The next banquet will be the 3rd Annual Sportsmen’s Night on March 28, 2015 at the Howells Ballroom in Howells with Special Guest Theresa Vail.
