LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Hunters may enter a lottery through the end of September to gain deer hunting access to Platte River Recreation Access lands in the central Platte River Valley.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 56 hunters will be chosen from a random drawing in early October and allowed to hunt deer on the designated lands Nov. 16-20.

Applications are limited to one per person and will be accepted by mail or in person at the Game and Parks service center in Kearney. Hunters may apply to hunt three areas but, if chosen, will receive permission for just one area. Lottery winners will be notified by Oct. 21.

More information and a map showing the available areas can be obtained at platteaccess.org, by calling 308-865-5338 or emailing ngpc.platteaccess@nebraska.gov.
