Nebraska GPC Offices to Open On Opening Day

All Nebraska Game and Parks Commission offices and service centers, as well as Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium, will be open Nov. 10, the opening day of the November firearm deer hunting season.

That means hunters will be able to purchase permits at Game and Parks offices in Lincoln, Omaha, Norfolk, Kearney, North Platte, Alliance and Bassett. The offices will be open from 8 a.m. to noon, except the Kearney office will be open until 5 p.m.

Game and Parks offices will be closed Nov. 11-12, when Veterans Day is observed. There will be deer check stations at the Lincoln, Norfolk, Kearney, North Platte, Alliance and Bassett offices, however.

The aquarium south of Gretna, which also will have a check station, will be open Nov. 11-12 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m..

Hunters also may purchase permits or donate to the Hunters Helping the Hungry program at
