1. Turkey
Fall turkey seasons in Nebraska run from mid-September to January during the fall for youth and adult hunters. According to the NGPC, turkey may be taken via archery or shotgun during that time period. Permits are unlimited, but in the fall each person may have only two permits.

2. Deer
To hunt deer in Nebraska in the fall, it’s helpful to be a skilled archer. A deer archery season is open from the beginning of September through December. There are a few weeks of fall when you can hunt deer with firearms, with the season typically starting in mid-November for just more than a week.

3. Elk
The gender of elk, the method of hunting and the owner of the property affect the legal dates of elk season. The NGPC allows hunting bulls with archery from mid-September through October, while firearms are restricted to the end of September through October. Cows may be hunted on private land from August through October, while hunting cows on public land is restricted to September through October and all of December.
