Nebraska Game and Parks runs programs, conducts research and collects data that helps inform our wildlife management decisions.
In order to best manage Nebraska’s wildlife resources, each year Game and Parks, along with agency partners, conduct wildlife and hunter surveys. These survey capture harvest and population information for deer, wild turkey and upland game. These surveys provide crucial information used to develop regulations, harvest quotas and research.
Wildlife management plans
Nebraska Game and Parks conducts research, gathers public input and creates plans to best manage our wildlife populations and natural resources.
From restoring bighorn sheep to the Pine Ridge, to recovering the critically endangered Salt Creek Tiger Beetle in Lincoln, Nebraska Game and Parks conducts wildlife research with the goal of building upon our current understanding of Nebraska species and their habits to aid in their conservation and management.
Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact
The Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact is an agreement that recognizes suspension of hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses in the 46 states that are members of the compact. This means that anyone whose license privileges or rights are suspended in any member state may also be suspended in all other member states.
Similar to the well-known Crime Stoppers program, the Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers program offers rewards for information resulting in arrests for fish and wildlife game law violations. The Game and Parks Commission provides an anonymous online form, a toll-free hotline, investigative operations and public information.
