The Nebraska Game and Parks Commissioners will consider a bonus point system for general bull elk permits when they meet Jan. 17 in Lincoln.

If passed, the system would give people who have applied for a bull elk permit and been unsuccessful one or more years a better chance of drawing a permit. Beginning in 2014, a person would receive a bonus point each time he or she applies for but does not receive a permit. In subsequent years, applicants would get an additional entry into the draw for each bonus point accrued.  Landowner permits would be excluded from this system.

The meeting is at 8 a.m. in the third-floor conference room of Game and Parks headquarters, 2200 N. 33rd St.

Also on the agenda are recommendations to:

  • Name the new education complex at Boosalis Park in Lincoln the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Outdoor Education Center;
  • Create a Commission order for rules regarding season dates, bag limits, hunting zones and conservation orders for coots, ducks, geese and crow;
  • Amend regulations to allow Game and Parks to manage foot access on wildlife management areas;
  • Amend camping and rental fees at state parks, recreation areas and historical parks;
  • Approve and adopt the Fort Robinson Management Plan; and
  • Approve four outdoor trail projects for federal funding through the Recreational Trails Program.
