ARCHERY, MUZZLELOADER, REGULAR SEASON DEER PERMITS AVAILABLE

Lincoln, Neb. – Nebraskas 2003 archery deer season is already underway, the muzzleloading season opens Dec. 1, and there are an unlimited number of permits for both seasons so anyone who wants to participate in either season may do so.

The dates for this years archery deer season are Sept. 15 - Nov. 14, and Nov. 24 - Dec. 31; and the muzzleloader season will be Dec. 1 - Dec. 31. Though there are an unlimited number of archery and muzzleloader permits available, hunters may have no more than two permits that allow the taking of antlered deer.

In addition to archery and muzzleloader permits, there are still permits available in a number of regular deer hunting units across the state. Many hunters are taking advantage of the unique “season choice” permits which allow the bearer to choose when to hunt and what equipment to use to harvest an antlerless deer. They can harvest their deer using archery equipment during the archery season, a muzzleloader during the muzzleloader season, or with 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. But, hunters should remember that a permit for Season Choice Area 2 or Area 13 is not valid at Harlan County Reservoir.

Permits are available online at the Game and Parks Commissions website at www.outdoornebraska.org, by mail, or from any Commission permitting office at Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium, Alliance, Bassett, Kearney, Norfolk, North Platte, Omaha or Lincoln.
