Nebraska a fall turkey hunting destination
Hunters will take to the field Sept. 15 for the start of the fall turkey season. Nebraska, the nation’s top turkey hunting destination, has the birds, permits and opportunities for a great outdoor adventure.
Turkey hunting can be combined with big game, upland game, waterfowl or fishing for a true Nebraska mixed bag outdoor adventure.
There are plenty of other reasons to undertake a Nebraska turkey hunt:
Birds—Wild turkeys are abundant, and may be found in all 93 counties. Hunters have the opportunity to harvest three turkey subspecies in Nebraska.
Permits—These may be purchased over the counter, are unlimited in quantity, and are valid statewide. Youth permits for hunters age 15 and younger are only $8. Fall hunters can buy up to two turkey permits. Permits allow hunters the option of harvesting with either a bow or shotgun. The bag limit for a fall permit is two turkeys of either sex.
