Public meeting May 15 about hunting at Summit Lake SRA

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will host a public meeting to gather input on hunting at Summit Lake State Recreation Area in Burt County on May 15.

Currently, approximately 175 acres of the 535-acre area are open to hunting annually beginning the Tuesday after Labor Day. Rifle deer hunting also is permitted at the site.

Nebraska Game and Parks will seek input on the continuation of hunting at this area during the meeting, which will take place at the First National Bank of Tekamah, 448 S 13th St #1, in Tekamah, from 6:30-8 p.m.

The public meeting will begin with a brief presentation about the area by Game and Parks staff. Following the presentation, attendees will rotate through four different stations in which they discuss pros and cons of various scenarios related to hunting at the area. Those who attend should plan to arrive promptly at 6:30 p.m.
