15 year old boy draws Nebraska's first mountain lion hunting permit

Posted: Updated:

A 15-year-old Franklin resident drew the state's first mountain lion lottery permit on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Holden Bruce will be allowed to hunt mountain lions during Season 1, Jan. 1-Feb. 14, 2014, in the Pine Ridge Unit.

As the first lottery permit holder, Bruce will be allowed to hunt mountain lions with dogs during Season 1. The 100 other lottery permit holders, which also were drawn Oct. 9, will hunt during Season 2, Feb. 15-March 31 in the Pine Ridge Unit, and will not be allowed to hunt with dogs. Permits have been mailed.

The other hunter allowed to hunt in Season 1 will be determined at the Nebraska Big Game Society banquet and auction Oct. 16 at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park. For more information on the auction, email nbgs11@gmail.com.
