Nebraska archery paddlefish applications accepted March 1-14

LINCOLN, Neb. – The application period for archery paddlefish permits begins at 1 p.m. Central Time on March 1. Mail applications must be received in the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Lincoln office by 5 p.m. and online applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. on March 14.

Permits will be issued in a random drawing based on preference points earned; applicants with the most preference points will receive the greatest priority. Any permits remaining following the drawing will be sold on a first-come basis beginning at 1 p.m. on May 1. A total of 275 permits is available.

New in 2017 is a $7 nonrefundable application fee, which is included in the permit prices. The permit fees are $33 for residents and $57 for nonresidents.

An applicant will receive a preference point if he or she is not awarded a permit in the drawing. An additional preference point will be added each year he or she is unsuccessful in the drawing. Any person who is issued a paddlefish permit and any person who does not apply at least once during five consecutive years will lose all accumulated preference points.
