The Nebraska Game and Parks Commissioners will consider 2011 waterfowl season recommendations at their meeting Aug. 30 in McCook. The meeting starts at 7 a.m. MT/8 a.m. CT at the Bureau of Reclamation Office, 1706 W. 3rd St.

If the recommendations are approved, waterfowl hunting would begin Sept. 3 with the Low Plains early teal season. High Plains teal season would start Sept. 10.

Commissioners also will consider a recommendation to raise, starting in 2012, the annual park permit fee from $20 to $25, the daily permit fee from $4 to $5 and the duplicate permit fee from $10 to $12.50.

Several other items are on the agenda, including recommendations to:

• Allow, during the youth pheasant season, an adult accompanying a youth hunter to harvest one rooster if hunting on a select wildlife management area where a special hunt has been declared.

• Allow hunters to shoot turkeys in season on controlled shooting areas.

• Amend regulations for resident deployed military permits, including creation of a $5 combination hunt-fish permit.

• Amend the nonresident two-day hunt permit to be valid for any two consecutive days during a calendar year.

The drawing for the bighorn sheep lottery permit also is on the agenda.
