Nebraska taking lottery applications for mountain lion permits

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting lottery applications for mountain lion permits through Sept. 27 for the 2020 hunting season.

Hunting will be allowed only in the Pine Ridge Unit of northwestern Nebraska, which has an established mountain lion population. Hunters may apply for a permit in either of two subunits: the South Subunit (south of U.S. Highway 20) or the North Subunit (north of U.S. Highway 20). A person may not submit more than one application per calendar year for a mountain lion permit.

A drawing will allocate 320 permits to each subunit, and only Nebraska residents can receive permits.

Up to eight mountain lions may be killed by hunters in 2020, with up to four of those being females. Once four mountain lions, or two females, have been taken in a subunit, the season in that subunit will close.

More information about mountain lion hunting regulations is available online.
