LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials are turning to hunters this year to ask their ideas about public land use in the state.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Nebraska will begin the three-year survey on Sept. 1.

Hunters at wildlife management areas or private lands enrolled in the Open Fields and Waters program may be approached by UNL researchers or Game and Park staff, who will ask a series of questions about their hunting experiences.

Game and Parks will use insights gained from the survey to improve opportunities and access on existing public hunting lands, as well as to help guide future land purchases.

The research is funded by a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife Restoration Grant.
