Nebraska Encourages Youth Hunting with Affordable Permits

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has announced that all hunters 15 and under are eligible to purchase both deer and turkey hunting permits for only $5! This should undoubtedly provide a spark to ignite growth among young people for hunting. For parents and guardians who are seeking affordable opportunities to initiate youth into either deer or turkey hunting (or both!) this initiative set forth by Nebraska Game and Parks really paves the way. These permits are even open to non-resident sportsmen! The fact that Nebraska has no minimum age for turkey hunters makes this a perfect "first hunt" opportunity!

According to the official Nebraska Game and Parks website ( there are a variety of reasons that they have chosen to extend this unique offer to young hunters. Nebraska's deer and turkey populations are at historically high numbers and that opens the door for more hunters. Also, deer and turkey permits are more plentiful and available than ever. Purchasing a deer permit provides the option to harvest whitetail and mule deer. Plus, Nebraska boasts three subspecies of turkeys (Merriams, Eastern, and Rio Grande).

In short, these affordable Youth Hunting Permits for deer and turkey are an excellent way to introduce young folks to the sport of hunting. Even if they already are introduced to the sport, this still provides a great way to help ensure the future of hunting.
