Deer Permits May Be Purchased June 9
LINCOLN, Neb. – Hunters are reminded to pick up a copy of the 2008 Nebraska Big Game Guide before June 9. At 1 p.m. CST that day, they may begin to purchase deer hunting permits.
The guide gives hunters all the information they will need to purchase permits, including season dates, maps, permits available, permit sell-out dates, and application forms.
Deer permits were issued via drawing for only two units this year, the Republican and DeSoto December muzzleloader units. All other deer permits may be purchased on a first-come basis beginning June 9.
The increased numbers of deer permits and later sellout dates of permits have nearly eliminated the need to conduct drawings for deer permits. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has put 51 of 53 deer units in the “buy” status, thereby eliminating the requirement to conduct drawings. This simplifies the permit process and allows hunters to buy and print their permit immediately beginning June 9.
Permits may be purchased at any Commission office or online at www.OutdoorNebraska.org.
