A Lincoln man has won the right to go hunting for a bighorn sheep late this fall in the Pine Ridge area of the Nebraska Panhandle.
Brent Bollwitt was one of 1,547 people who paid a $25 fee to enter a lottery for the single permit. The fee money is used for the Nebraska bighorn sheep management program.
Last year, 1,357 entered the lottery.
The 41-year-old Bollwitt is a member of the Nebraska Air National Guard.
His permit is valid for a specific area of the Pine Ridge, Dec. 1-22.
The lottery was open only to state residents who would be at least 12 years old by Dec. 1.
