What would this hurt?
« on: May 05, 2009, 11:03:00 PM »
I wrote the game & parks here a couple of weeks ago, about opening the state parks to archery hunting after thanksgiving. It would kill two birds with one stone. Thinning the deer herds, and giving us bowhunters more public land options. They do it with Indian Cave, so why not all state parks? Also it's usually pretty darn cold out at that time, so the parks are not being used by the non-hunting public. Needless to say, they did not contact me back.

You might want to check. I know that some of the parks around Lincoln have open hunting. They just have designated areas.

Thanks Eric, but I was thinking they should all be open, except for maybe Mahoney. It's after Thanksgiving, it's cold out, the parks are over-run with deer, and their not getting much use if any. I would rather see archers, who pay for a permit, and habitat stamp, be aloud to hunt the deer, than the neighboring farmers be given crop damage tags. I've heard alot of horror stories about how some that goes down. If I'm not mistaken, the game & parks were considering opening certain parks, like Schram & Platte River State Park to archery, at one time. Could have been a rumor, but I thought it was in the paper, a few years back.

Maybe your letter helped as the NG&PC just announced that they WILL open Mahoney, Ponca, Indian Cave, Ft. Atkinson, and Niobrara.  But the press release didn't say if it was bow, gun, MZ, doe, buck, or anything about when...just mentioned 2009.  I would suspect they'd need to get that info out soon!
