The Commission’s management goal for elk is to maintain resilient, healthy, and socially acceptable populations that are in balance with available habitat and other wildlife.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission adopted changes to the elk management plan in April 2023, including restructuring the elk management units.
Goals for elk unit reorganization
- To provide elk permits and focus efforts in “new” areas to better manage populations in those areas
- To better distribute permits in “problem” areas
- To allow statewide elk harvest
The proposed unit changes were presented in a public informational meeting Jan. 17, 2023.
