LINCOLN -- Hunters have less than a month to apply for a permit to hunt in three eastern Nebraska state park areas. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has opened the application process for antlerless hunting permits at Eugene T. Mahoney and Platte River state parks... also on that list is Schramm Park State Recreation Area. Applicants will be issued a special access permit allowing them to hunt in designated areas of each park on designated dates in December and January. Successful applicants have to attend an orientation session in order to receive the special permit - applications are limited to one per person and will be accepted through 5P on Oct. 31st. If more applications are received than can be accommodated, a drawing will be held the following week on Nov. 6th.
