    gifford park drawing

    Does anyone know when they draw for the Gifford park hunt? I know you have to be entered by Aug 15 but curious when drawing takes place

    I would assume you would know pretty quick since archery opener is the 1st.
    There are two pains in life! The pain of discipline, and the pain of regret!

        Does anyone know if you are allowed to access gifford from the river in a boat if you draw a tag?

          From the big game guide...

          A special access pass is required. There are 200 access permits issued by drawing. Contact the Lincoln Game and Parks office at 402-471-0641 or Omaha office at 402-595-2144 to apply from July 15 -Aug. 15. All regulations relating to season dates and weapon types apply, except that archers may hunt with archery equipment during the November firearm season. Centerfire weapons are prohibited.

            FYI the Statewide Whitetail Buck tag cannot be used to apply for Gifford this year. Found that out the hard way. The NGPC let you use it to apply for Gifford last year, but that has changed.

                  What reason did they give for that?

                    Only that centerfire arms are prohibited and that tag is valid during the firearms season. I was like "well duh, I just can't hunt with a centerfire with that tag in Gifford" But that didn't make any difference to them.

                    Now that I think about it though Youth Tags are valid for that season and they too are good during the firearms season!!!! I believe I will call and argue that point with them tomorrow.

                    I think the rule to be really dumb, not much common sense put into it. IMO, so long as you have valid tag for archery or muzzleloader and you aren't in there hunting with a centerfire there should be no problems!!

                      Interesting i had no problem last year using my SWBO tag. I always wondered why they would not allow you to hunt with a muzzy during the Nov. season, its not a centerfire, and they do allow muzzys all Dec, why not 9 days in Nov?

                        Same here, but when I went to apply this year they would not let me use it for my application.
