Commissioners to Consider Waterfowl Amendments

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Board of Commissioners will consider amendments to youth waterfowl and early teal season regulations when they meet July 11 in Niobrara.

The meeting will begin at 8 a.m. at the Niobrara State Park group lodge, 89261 522 Ave.

The commissioners also will consider:

– increasing the cost of some nonresident deer and turkey permits between 3 and 11 percent;

– adding language regarding the eligibility of fall youth turkey hunters that would copy the same requirements for spring youth turkey hunters. The new language states that youth must be age 15 and under, and that youth age 16 may hunt on youth fall turkey permits provided they are age 15 when they apply and provided they are age 15 on the opening day of the season of the calendar year;

– passing a regulation that bans the possession or use of explosive or incendiary targets while target shooting on wildlife management areas.
