Nebraska Permit Requirements

Deer hunters in Nebraska are required to have a Statewide or Unit Deer Permit and a Habitat stamp. (view big game guide for exceptions)

Deer permits are issued as Draw units or Buy units. Draw units are determined by overall demand and may be applied for during the draw unit application period. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission provides information on the previous year’s draw results. Buy units (over-the-counter permits) are issued on a first-come, first served basis. Additionally, youth permits are available to youth under the age of 16. (See the Big Game Guide for more on permits, unit names, species of deer and bag limits.)

Before going out to hunt make sure to check out the Nebraska Parks & Wildlife Website to verify season dates.

New Mexico Deer Season Dates

New Mexico Open Gate Program

Open Gate is a voluntary access program available to outdoor users and landowners statewide. Its primary purpose is to provide more opportunities to hunt, fish and trap statewide. To accomplish this, NMDGF leases lands and waters from private landowners for a variety of unique hunting, fishing and trapping opportunities.

Each property participating in Open Gate will have special rules for permitted activities agreed upon by the landowner and NMDGF. These rules will be posted on the property and are also available on the NMDGF website. Hunters, Anglers and trappers can use this information to locate and learn about properties that match their interests.

It is the responsibility of the individual using the property to know and obey posted rules. Citations may be issued for violation of any rules or regulations.

Be a Respectful and Courteous Guest

  • Follow all posted rules.
  • Leave all gates as you found them.
  • Don’t block gates or roads with parked vehicles.
  • Don’t shoot towards livestock, buildings or equipment.
  • Pick up any trash along the way.
  • If you see the landowner, don’t forget to offer an appreciative thank you!

Hunting Mule Deer In Montana

Finding mule deer in eastern Montana sage and grasslands often mean seeing what’s right there in front of you. Muleys are often open-country deer. They’ll sit contentedly out in sparse cover, brush that barely breaks up their outlines, brush that would make the average whitetail feel downright naked.

Montana Hunting Season Dates information above provided by the Montana Department of Wildlife. Before going out to hunt make sure to double-check the rules and regulations on THIER WEBSITE or here!
