Commission to meet Jan. 19 at Mahoney
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will meet Jan. 19 at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park near Ashland to consider establishing a reduced-price restricted statewide buck-any deer permit. The meeting will begin at 8 a.m. at Riverview Lodge.
This permit would have lower fees than the statewide buck-any deer permit because the restricted permit hunting area would exclude some areas for mule deer harvest. If passed, the restricted statewide buck-any deer fees would be $125 for residents and $695 for nonresidents.
The fees would remain unchanged for the statewide buck-whitetail only permit and for the statewide buck permit that would allow for mule deer harvest with no area restrictions.
Spring turkey permits available Jan. 8
Spring turkey hunting permits for 2018 are now available from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Nebraska offers the best turkey hunting opportunities in the entire country. Nebraska offers birds in every county of the state, including the highly-sought-after Merriam’s in some areas. The state also offers plentiful and affordable permits, long seasons, great public access and $8 permits for youth.
Wild turkey hunters in Nebraska enjoy high success rates. In the spring, hunters can purchase as many as three permits, with a bag limit of one turkey per permit.
The spring archery season opens March 25, youth shotgun on April 7, and the regular shotgun on April 14. All spring turkey seasons close May 31.
