WHITE-TAILED BUCK: Mostly white-tailed buck deer were taken by special landowner deer permit holders in the inaugural season in Nebraska in early November.
The $8 permits went out to 3,690 hunters and were valid for a three-day period.

For hunters in Nebraska’s inaugural special landowner deer season, their season is over.

The $8 special landowner deer permit — of which 3,690 were sold — was valid only for the three-day season, which ended Nov. 8, and is not valid for any other deer season.

According to preliminary results from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, hunters had a 24% success rate during the special landowner deer season. The harvest includes 590 white-tailed bucks, 100 white-tailed does, 177 mule deer bucks and 21 mule deer does.

Highest harvest

Overall harvest was highest in the Blue Northwest (81), Frenchman (81), Wahoo (77), Blue Southeast (71), Platte (68), Elkhorn (66) and Loup East (64) deer management units.

The special landowner season permit allowed a qualifying landowner to hunt on his or her property on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before the opening of the November firearm deer season.

This special season and permit were created by the passage of LB 126 in the Nebraska Legislature’s 2020 session.
