Hunters May Enter Lottery for Deer Hunting Access on the Central Platte - Applications Due by October 1, 2012

Hunters can enter into a lottery to gain deer hunting access to Platte River Recreation Access (PRRA) lands in the central Platte River valley, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. Thirty-two hunters will be chosen from a random drawing, which will be held in early October, and will be issued written permission allowing them to hunt deer on designated PRRA lands during the November firearm season from Nov. 16-18.
Applications, limited to one per person, will be accepted by mail or in person at the Game and Parks Kearney service center through 5 p.m. on Oct. 1. Hunters can apply to hunt three areas but will only receive permission on one area if their name is drawn. Hunters are required to obtain the appropriate deer permit and a habitat stamp to hunt.

PRRA lands are closed to all access from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15. More information and a map showing the available areas can be found at http://platteaccess.org, by calling 308-865-5338 or e-mailing ngpc.platteaccess@nebraska.gov.

PRRA lands are lands purchased by the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program for the restoration and maintenance of habitat for three threatened and endangered species in the central Platte River valley. The PRRA program allows limited access to these properties when access will not disturb these species.
