The state would establish a bounty program intended to increase the number of ring-necked pheasants in Nebraska under a bill heard Feb. 8 by the Natural Resources Committee.

Under LB400, introduced by Sen. Tom Brewer of Gordon, the state Game and Parks Commission would pay a $10 bounty on each badger, coyote, opossum, raccoon, red fox and striped skunk harvested from March 1 to July 1 each year. The commission could pay a maximum of 50,000 bounties per year.
