Spring turkey permits now available

Nebraska Game and Parks

Spring turkey hunting permits are 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 $5 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 Mar. 25, youth shotgun Apr. 8, and the regular shotgun Apr. 15. All spring turkey seasons close May 31.
