For a complete list of Game and Parks Commission holiday shopping opportunities, see the NEBRASKAland Gift Collection catalog, available through outdoornebraska.org/catalog or call toll-free at 1-800-742-0056.

Among the most popular annual gift ideas is a subscription to NEBRASKAland Magazine, which traditionally celebrates Nebraskas glorious outdoor activities, history, parks and diverse landscape through the work of the agencys award-winning authors and photographers. In a special offer, each new subscription will include a free copy of Nebraska Wild and Scenic, a 132-page picture book filled with dramatic photos of Nebraskas natural wonders.

NEBRASKAland subscriptions for 10 issues per year, including the $14.95 Nebraska Wild and Scenic, are: $18 for one year, $33 for two years and $49 for three years.

The Gift Catalog also features other special NEBRASKAland publications, including the Wild Game Cookbook; photographic prints, childrens apparel, adventure backpack, games and toys and a variety of adult clothing, instructional materials, note cards and gift certificates.

After Jan. 1, 2006, shoppers will find resident and new non-resident lifetime permits available on sliding scales, depending on the age of the permit holder. For instance, resident lifetime hunting permits will be sold for $126 for children up to 5 years old, $186 for 6- 15, $286 for 16-45 and $186 for 46 and older. For a chart on lifetime permit prices before and after Jan. 1, check the Game and Parks Commission web site, www.outdoornebraska.org/catalog.

Applications for lifetime permits are available at all permit vendors, and lifetime permits may be purchased at Commission offices in Lincoln, Omaha, Alliance, Bassett, Norfolk, North Platte and Kearney.

Changes for 2006 that will affect other Nebraskans include the creation of an annual resident hunt/fish permit for veterans 64 years and older, as well all residents 69 and older. Both of these permits will cost $5. These fees replace the current fee-exempt permit issued to veterans 65 and older and residents 70 and older.

Eligible resident disabled veterans will continue to receive a lifetime fee-exempt permit, and those seniors and veterans who had fee-exempt permits before January 1, 2006 will not be affected by the change. Also, in a change from the past, even veterans who have not served in a recognized time of combat will qualify for the new permits, but the new $5 permits will not be available to National Guard or reservists who have not been called up to active duty.

The change to eliminate fee-exempt permits for seniors and veterans was made to allow the Commission to count the senior/veteran permits in a Federal Aid apportionment formula. Fee-exempt permits are not allowed in determining the federal distribution to states.

"The current federal reimbursement for each hunter and angler is more than $35 and is constantly increasing. That means Nebraska will be eligible for more than $87,500 in federal aid reimbursement the first year veterans and senior citizens purchase their permits, and that amount will increase annually," said Assistant Game and Parks Commission Director Kirk Nelson.

Those seeking special permits for veterans or seniors will still be required to apply at Commission offices across the state. Such permits are not available electronically.

The 2006 permit structure also includes a new Nebraska Migratory Waterfowl Stamp, which is required for all waterfowl hunters.

I wish my parents had given me a lifetime hunt/fish permit years ago.
I plan on giving one to my sons, once I am sure they have firmly been bitten by the hunt/fish bug
