Hunters May Purchase Remaining Deer Permits Beginning June 26
Beginning at 1 p.m. June 26, resident and nonresident deer hunters may purchase remaining permits for the 2006 deer hunting seasons, within permits limits, in units where permits remain.
Nebraskas 2006 regular firearm deer hunting season will be November 11-19. The archery deer hunting season will be September 15 - November 10 and November 20 through December 31 (the archery season will be closed during the regular November firearm season, November 11-19). The muzzleloader season will be December 1-31. There are unlimited archery and muzzleloader permits available.
There are still plenty of statewide buck-only permits and season choice permits available. The statewide buck-only permit allows the hunter to take a buck from any deer unit in the state during the November firearm deer season. The unique "season choice" permit allows the bearer to choose when to hunt. Holders of season choice permits can harvest an antlerless deer using archery equipment during the archery season, a muzzleloader during the muzzleloader season, or a firearm during the November firearm season or the special late firearm season in January. The hunter can use a season choice permit to hunt in any or all of the seasons until the permit is filled. Hunters should remember however, that a permit for Season Choice Area 2 is not valid at Harlan County Reservoir.
Resident and nonresident hunters may purchase permits within permit limits beginning at 1 p.m., June 26. Permits will be 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, Wild Cat Hills State Recreation Area, and at the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium. Completed application forms will also be accepted by mail at the Commissions Lincoln office at 2200 N. 33rd Street, Lincoln, 68503.
