LINCOLN – Treat someone special to the gift that lasts a lifetime – a Nebraska lifetime permit. It is the ultimate gift for any hunter or angler and an investment in the future.
Lifetime hunt, fish, and combination hunt-fish permits, as well as lifetime waterfowl and habitat stamps, are available for residents and nonresidents. Lifetime fur harvest permits are available to residents only. Hunt and combination hunt-fish permits allow for the hunting of small game, upland game and waterfowl. They are not valid for hunting turkey, big game or furbearers.
Resident permits are priced for the following age groups: 0-5 years, 6-15, 16-45, and 46 and older. Nonresident permits are available for ages 0-16 years and 17 and older.
Those who buy lifetime permits in 2015 will avoid the small price increases that take effect in January. In addition, starting in 2016, there no longer will be the 0-5 and 6-15 age groups for residents. They will be combined into a 0-15 age group.
Lifetime permits are great for conservation, too. The proceeds from the sale of lifetime permits go into escrow, with the interest used to help support wildlife and fisheries management programs. And in addition to a regular paper license, each permit or stamp comes with an engraved, enameled brass plate and carrying case.
Lifetime permits may be purchased at OutdoorNebraska.org, at Nebraska Game and Parks Commission permitting offices, or by calling toll-free at 1-800-632-5263. For more information, visit: http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/hunting/Types_Permits.asp.
