  1. Hunter Education Requirements - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Hunter Education page reports that hunters between the ages of 12 and 29 are required to carry proof of completion of a firearm hunter education course on their person whenever hunting with an airgun or firearm. Additionally, bowhunters in the same age range must carry proof of completion of a bowhunter education course on their person when they hunt deer, antelope, elk, or mountain sheep with bow weapons. These requirements can be met through online courses with a fee or free on-site classroom courses.
  2. Who Needs a Permit? - Any Nebraska resident at least 16 years old who hunts waterfowl or upland game needs a hunting permit. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission defines a resident as anyone who has lived in the state for 30 continuous days, intends to make the state their home, and has proof of residency such as a Nebraska driver’s license or voter registration. Additionally, any nonresidents who plan to hunt any mammal or bird in Nebraska must have a state-issued permit.
  3. Habitat Stamps -Those who plan to harvest fur-bearering animal or hunt any game animals in Nebraska must also have a Habitat Stamp. For residents, those at least 16 years of age must have a stamp, and nonresidents of all ages must have a Nebraska Habitat Stamp.

  5. Lengths of Permits and Stamps - There are several ways in which hunters can get their permits and Habitat Stamps for each hunting year. Permits and stamps are sold and priced in bundles when they are for three years, five years, or lifetime, and are sold separately on an annual basis. Of course, as the time the permit is valid increases, so does the price, but it is in hunters’ best interest to buy for multiple years at a time to get the lowest cost per season.
  6. Other Types of Permits - Hunters who meet certain qualifications can receive markdowns on Nebraska hunting permits. Veterans who are Nebraska residents, at least 64 years old, and served on active duty for at least six months can purchase a combination hunt/fish permit for just five dollars. Veterans who meet these requirements and are also disabled can receive permits free of charge, and all veterans receive Nebraska Aquatic Habitat and Waterfowl stamps for free. Resident seniors at least 69-years-old have the same benefits as able-bodied veterans. Finally, Nebraska residents who prove that they were deployed out-of-state with some branch of the United States military in the last 12 months can receive an annual hunt/fish permit and a Habitat Stamp, an Aquatic Stamp, and a Migratory Waterfowl Stamp on a one-time basis.
