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 2004 archery deer season will be September 15 - November 12 and November 22 - December 31. The November firearm season will be November 13-21 and 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.

All permits will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. They are available online at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission web site at www.outdoornebraska.org and over the counter at Commission permitting offices at Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium, Alliance, Bassett, Chadron State Park, Fort Robinson State Park, Kearney, Niobrara State Park, Norfolk, North Platte, Omaha, Lincoln, and Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area. Resident landowner permits are also available at Commission permitting offices.
