Nebraska lawmakers have postponed a vote on bill that would prevent counties from killing black-tailed prairie dogs when residents complain about the animals on their property.  Lawmakers adjourned for the week on Thursday without taking action. Sen. Al Davis, a rancher from Hyannis, is trying to kill the measure.  The 2012 law gives counties the power to adopt management programs to keep them from spreading.  Advocates say the animals are an important native species and the current law infringes on private property rights. Opponents say counties have the right to intervene because prairie dogs ravage ranchland by digging holes that can injure cattle and damage equipment.  Sen. Galen Hadley,...

The federal government says it has sent offers to more than 11,000 landowners who own parcels on the Rosebud Indian Reservation as part its effort to help tribal governments consolidate land.  Deputy Secretary Mike Conner says more than $34 million in purchase offers have been sent to landowners with fractional interests on the reservation. The initial round of purchases began last summer when more than 11,000 landowners on the reservation were sent more than $50 million in purchase offers.  Land buy-back programs aim to help Native American tribes buy parcels of reservation land that have accumulated multiple owners.

A proposal to massively expand the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (Corps) powers under the federal Clean Water Act (CWA) should focus on finding common sense solutions to clean water, not give the federal government blanket authority for regulating all waters everywhere, according to testimony offered by Morrill County (Nebraska) Farm Bureau President Jeff Metz before the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee today. “Let me be very clear – everyone wants clean water,” said Metz. “However, this proposed rule isn’t about clean water. This rule is clearly focused on expanding the role of federal regulatory agencies into the daily lives of...

Pine Ridge Mule Deer Counted

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has completed the second year of an annual mule deer survey in portions of the Pine Ridge management unit in northwestern Nebraska. On Feb. 6-9, Commission employees used a contracted helicopter to repeat the 2014 mule deer survey.  Commission staff counted 758 deer in 429 square miles of the unit compared to 862 in the same areas in 2014. The data will be compared to mule deer numbers in other areas of the state to assess long-term trends. Lower counts in 2015 may be attributable to less snow cover during the survey period, which makes spotting animals more challenging, said Todd Nordeen, a big game manager for the Commission. The data will be...
