The required hunter registration in the state’s Harvest Information Program begins Aug. 1.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says program registration is required of Nebraskans 16 and older and all nonresidents who plan to hunt migratory game birds between Aug. 1 and July 31 next year.
The federally mandated program helps officials keep track of how many birds are killed each year by hunters. The data help the setting of limits and seasons.
Hunters may register online at www.nehip.com or by telephone at 877-634-8687. The hunters will be given numbers that they must keep with them while on hunts.
Permits are available at the commission website, OutdoorNebraska.org.
