The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will consider a mountain lion management plan when it meets Friday in Omaha.
The mountain lion management plan is intended to guide management decisions based on the agency’s mission, as well as on the goals and principles stated in the plan.
The commission also will accept testimony from the public regarding staff recommendations to change shooting hours for small game, including pheasant, quail, grouse, dove, snipe, rails, woodcock, partridge, rabbits, and squirrels. Current shooting hours are from one half hour before sunrise to sunset; the staff proposal calls to change shooting hours from sunrise to sunset. If approved, the change would take effect in August of 2018.
