Archery Deer Season

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

There are still plenty of deer hunting permits, including an unlimited number of archery permits, available for Nebraskas 2004 hunting seasons.

Nebraskas 2005 archery deer season is open now and the first part of the season will continue through November 11. The second part of the season will be November 21 - December 31. The November firearm season will be November 12-20 and the muzzleloader season will be December 1-31.

Both resident and nonresident hunters may purchase deer permits, within permit limits, in any unit where permits remain, but Nebraska law allows any person to possess no more than two permits that allow for the taking of antlered deer. Hunters can obtain an unlimited number of antlerless-only deer permits.

Permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis both online at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commissions web site at www.outdoornebraska.org, and over the counter from Commission offices in Alliance, Bassett, Chadron State Park (SP), Fort Robinson SP, Kearney, Niobrara SP, Norfolk, North Platte, Omaha, Lincoln, Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area, and at the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium. Completed application forms will also be accepted by mail to the Commissions Lincoln office at 2200 N. 33rd Street, Lincoln, 68503.
