Nebraska deer permits go on sale Monday, July 9 at 1 p.m.
Residents and nonresidents alike may purchase permits, a number of which feature bonus antlerless only tags.
Changes for 2012 include a new River Antlerless permit, which replaces the October Antlerless permit and provides hunting opportunities in 1,800 miles of river corridors in the state. All Season Choice Areas and boundaries have been modified to match the November firearms units and boundaries, and Earn-A-Buck requirements have been removed from all areas. The November firearm season is scheduled for November 10-18, 2012.
Those buying permits online will be given the option to donate to Nebraska's Hunters Helping the Hungry program, established by the state legislature in 2012. This program provides custom processing of deer donated by hunters; the venison is distributed to those in need through food pantries and community feeding centers. The program is 100% funded by donations.
