Fall turkey season opens Sept. 15 in Nebraska

From the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

-- Fall turkey season opens Sept. 15 across Nebraska. Getting new hunters into the field could be even easier this year with reduced-price permits available for youth.

Fall turkey permits are $24 for residents, $91 for nonresidents and $6 for youth younger than 16 years (residents and nonresidents), including issuing fee. The reduced price youth permits were a big success during the spring turkey season, when youth permit sales more than doubled from the previous spring.

Adult and youth hunters can shoot turkeys through Dec. 31 with either archery equipment or shotgun. A fall turkey or youth fall turkey permit allows the take of two turkeys with either archery equipment or shotgun. Permits are unlimited in number, but no hunter may have more than two fall turkey permits. The bag limit is two turkeys per permit.

Turkey hunters are required to wear at least 400 square inches of hunter orange on their head, chest and back when hunting during the November firearm deer season, which is Nov. 13 to 21.  Permits may be purchased online at http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/hunting/guides/biggame/turkey/BGturkey.asp.
