The following message is from Patrick Cole with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission:
2010 will be bringing about some significant changes to permitting.  All of the common hunt/fish type permits will be issued through the electronic system, even at external vendor locations. Some permit fee changes in summary:
The Habitat Stamp for 2010 will be $20.00 (a $4.00 increase). This also means the Lifetime Habitat Stamp will go from $320 to $400 January 1, 2010.
The Aquatic Habitat Stamp for 2010 will be $10.00 (a 2.50 increase)….note this adds to the cost of Fishing permits (except the 1-day).  So while no increase to the Fishing permit fees were made, their costs will increase due to the increase in the incorporated Aquatic Habitat Stamp. 
Nonresident Paddlefish Permits will increase $20 to the 2010 rate of $40.00
A Nonresident Combination Hunt and Fish permit was created for a fee of $120.00  (add the required $10.00 aquatic stamp and necessary $20.00 habitat stamp and the cost will be $150 plus the issue fee ($1.00 from NPC or $2.00 from external agent).
Resident Lifetime Furharvest permits were established with similar cost and age breaks as the resident lifetime hunt permit.
Perhaps one of the more dramatic and unprecedented moves was the creation of youth deer, antelope and turkey permits at record low price of $5.00.  This price is for either resident or nonresident participants age 15 and below.  The goal is to increase interest and participation by young hunters. 
Changes involving nonrefundable application fees for our new ‘lottery’ type permit offerings.  These new offerings that will become available next year, might include such things as a ‘statewide’ elk permit or a multispecies permit that would allow the harvest of a deer, 2 turkeys, an antelope and perhaps in some cases an elk.  The actual offerings will be determined in wildlife regulations.  These permits would be offered in a similar fashion as the Bighorn Sheep permit, where an individual can apply and be put in a drawing.
