NE – HUNTING – Nebraskans took to turkey hunting during shutdown

Nebraska is a turkey hunting destination each spring. There’s plenty of space, three different subspecies of turkey and hospitable rural communities. Nebraska Nice, they call it. But, as with so many plans, the COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench into the travels of would-be nonresident hunters who annually visit the state. The typical Nebraska turkey season runs from mid-March through May, with staggered dates for archery and shotgun hunting. On March 30, Nebraska Game and Parks closed sales of turkey permits to nonresident hunters in an effort to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus. New forthcoming research from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Chris Chizinski, in collaboration with Nebraska Game and Parks, explored the fallout of COVID-19 on turkey hunting, and found that the pandemic was an economic hit to the state, but may have brought new and returning resident hunters into the sport. Using data from permit sales, the researchers found that overall, Nebraska Game and Parks sustained an approximately $1.1 million loss due to a decline of 89% in nonresident permit sales. Comparing the 2019 season to 2020, 11,856 less nonresident permits were sold. This is substantial, since nonresident permits are $109, compared to $30 for residents. Game and Parks receives much of its funding for conservation and public land management related to permit sales. Resident hunters made up some of the gap, purchasing 6,264 more permits in 2020 than in 2019, and more new hunters gave turkey hunting a try. New resident hunters made up 24% of permits sold, and resident hunters that had been inactive for 2-plus years made up 19%. In the year prior, new or inactive returning hunters made up 20% and 13%, respectively, of permits sold. If the new and returning hunters continue hunting in the future, this may lead to an uptick in permit sales in the future, a potential unforeseen benefit of COVID.  [full article]
