NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) - State officials have announced that target shooting will no longer be allowed at a southeastern Nebraska wildlife management area.

Hamburg Bend Wildlife Management Area in Otoe County is now closed to target shooting.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the closure comes at the request of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which owns the property, as well a sanitary improvement district that managed the Missouri River levee on the site.

They asked that target shooting be prohibited because of safety concerns for neighboring landowners and area users, as well as erosion of the river levee.

Target shooting is permitted on wildlife management areas in the state unless restricted or prohibited by posted signs or by special area regulations.
