Senator Dan Hughes

Joined Caucus:




Representing Nebraska’s 44th District, Senator Dan Hughes was first elected to the Nebraska Legislature in 2014. In the same year, Senator Hughes expressed his commitment to protecting and advancing Nebraska’s sporting traditions by joining the Nebraska Legislative Sportsmen’s Forum. He currently serves as chairman of the Natural Resources Committee in the legislature.

A third-generation farmer and small business owner, Senator Hughes owns and operates his family farm in Chase County and Perkins County, Nebraska.

 The Cornhusker State is home to more than 289,000 hunters and anglers who spend $780 million annually on their outdoor pursuits, supporting almost 13,000 jobs in the state. These numbers show the vital role that Nebraska’s sportsmen and women play in the state’s economy and in the American System of Conservation Funding.

Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
