LINCOLN, Neb. — The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking access for anglers and hunters to private land.
The commission’s Open Fields and Waters Program provides landowners additional income for allowing walk-in hunting, trapping and/or fishing access on their properties. More than 700 private landowners participated last year.
Landowners receive annual payments that vary from 50 cents to $15 an acre. They also are protected from liability under the Nebraska Recreation Liability Act.
Landowners can contact Game and Parks district offices for more information: Alliance (308-763-2940), Lincoln (402-471-0641), Norfolk (402-370-3374) or North Platte (308-535-8025).
