All hunters aged 15 and under can get Nebraska deer and turkey permits for $5.

Hunting in Nebraska also means:
  • No minimum age for turkey hunters.
  • A long turkey season.
  • Up to 3 youth turkey and 2 youth deer tags per hunter.
  • Youth deer permits that are good for whitetail or mule deer in most units (check the Nebraska Big Game Guide for details - 2014 Coming soon!)
  • Youth deer tags are good during any open season (until the tag is filled)

There is no minimum age for turkey hunters, making for a perfect
"first hunt" opportunity. We have both whitetail and mule deer,
plus three subspecies of turkeys (Merriams, Eastern, and Rio Grande).

Where to Hunt

Public Access Atlas
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has partnered with organizations to provide public walk-in hunting access on private land.

Nebraska’s public lands encompass nearly 800,000 acres on about 300 state and federal areas, most of which is owned by the federal government. The state’s public hunting lands comprise 2 percent of the state’s total land area.

Wildlife Management Areas
Nebraska's state wildlife areas are managed by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission's Wildlife Division for the enhancement of wildlife habitat and for public hunting and fishing. However, they are open to many other activities, including such things as hiking, bird watching, nature study and primitive camping.

The Path Program began in 2006 and provides Nebraska Youth and their mentors access to private lands to foster mentored youth hunting opportunities across the state.

Here in Nebraska, these ARE the good old days!
