The Nebraska Game and Parks Board of Commissioners will consider creating the state’s inaugural mountain lion hunting season when they meet July 26 in Lincoln.
The meeting will begin at 8 a.m. in the third-floor conference room of Game and Parks headquarters, 2200 N. 33rd St.
The commissioners also will consider staff recommendations for 2013 waterfowl, crow and falconry seasons. In addition, they will consider:
-- a recommendation to allow restricted hunting in several state park areas.
-- an interlocal agreement with the City of Gothenburg to rehabilitate Lake Helen.
-- a flood protection levee easement for the Peru Dike and Drainage District No. 1 of Nemaha County to build, maintain and operate a levee by accessing Peru Bottoms Wildlife Management Area (WMA).
-- acquisition of 461 acres of land in Cherry County to be designated as Chat Canyon WMA.
Gov. Dave Heineman will make an appearance and draw the winning entry in the Nebraska Super Tag Lottery. More than 2,000 people paid $25 to enter the lottery for the four-species (deer, elk, antelope and turkey) hunting permit.
