Nebraska Deer Season Update

It’s coming soon: Nebraska’s nine-day firearm deer season is Nov. 13-21. With deer in every county, over-the-counter permits and easy access to public land, you’re in for a great experience.

Permits are still available in a number of firearm units, and can be purchased online. Looking to fill your freezer? Take advantage of our antlerless hunting opportunities. Include young hunters as well — youth permits are just $8! Youth ages 10 to 15 (including non-residents) are eligible.

Also, if you apply online, you have the chance to give to a great cause while completing your purchase: Hunters Helping the Hungry has provided more than 700,000 meals of venison to Nebraskans in need. Learn more.

Here’s a few additional things to keep in mind:

Want to extend your deer hunt? Season choice permits are a great fit because they include a late season firearm opportunity in January 2022. Extend your deer season by trying several methods of take.

Landowners who qualify are offered special hunting permit options.

Want a different type of challenge? Archery deer permits are still available, and our muzzleloader season begins Dec 1.

If you end up with more meat than you can use, sign up for the Deer Exchange program and share your extra harvest.
