Beginning June 12, residents and nonresidents can apply for one 2017 Nebraska deer permit in any draw unit, and residents may apply for one elk permit and one buck or either-sex antelope permit in available units.
Paper applications must be received by June 23 at 5 p.m. Central Time or by 11:59 p.m. for online applications. One application is allowed per person per species.
Draw units are established to provide equal opportunity to obtain permits in those units. They are determined by the overall demand on a unit’s permits. Residents get preference over nonresidents when these permits are drawn.
Applications may be made at OutdoorNebraska.org via application form in the 2017 Big Game Guide.
To apply in person, visit a Game and Parks permitting office; a list of offices is in the Big Game Guide.
Permits will be drawn by early July. Beginning on July 10, residents, nonresidents and eligible landowners may purchase remaining deer and antelope permits, and residents and eligible landowners may purchase remaining elk permits.
In addition, July 7 is the final day to apply for multispecies lottery permits.
