LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A lottery is being held for deer hunting access to Platte River Recreation Access lands in the central Platte River Valley.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 38 hunters will be chosen from a drawing in early October. They'll be allowed to hunt deer on designated lands Nov. 16-24.
Applications, limited to one per person, will be accepted by mail or in person at the Game and Parks service center in Kearney from Sunday through 5 p.m. on Sept. 30. Hunters can apply to hunt three areas but will receive permission on only one area if their names are drawn.
More information and a map showing the available areas can be obtained at platteaccess.org, by calling 308-865-5338 or emailing email@example.com.
