LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Hunters can soon enter a lottery to get deer hunting access to lands in the central Platte River Valley.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 38 hunters will be chosen at random during a drawing scheduled in early October. They will be able to hunt on the Platte River Recreation Access lands between Nov. 16 and Nov. 24.
Hunters can apply to hunt in three areas but will only be selected to hunt in one. Applications will be accepted throughout September by mail or at the commission's service center in Kearney.
The Platte River Recovery Implementation Program owns Platte River Recreation Access lands, which are only available for limited times. The program restores and maintains the habitat of three threatened and endangered species in the central Platte River Valley.
