Nebraska Big Game Permit Applications Open May 21

Big game hunters may begin applying for Nebraska permits May 21.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will accept applications through June 1. Hunters may apply for one deer permit, one antelope permit and one elk permit during that time.

Permit drawings will take place in early June. Residents get preference over nonresidents. Any remaining permits will be available from July 9 to the close of the 2012-13 big game seasons on a first-come, first-serve “over the counter” basis.
