Nebraska Firearm Deer Season Opens Saturday Posted by John Axtell Date: November 13, 2020 355 Views Nebraska’s firearm deer season begins tomorrow and runs through next Sunday, Nov 22. Game and Parks northwest district wildlife manager Hunter Baillie thinks deer hunters should have pretty good success. Baillie says hunters who haven’t gotten their permits yet still have plenty of options for white-tail deer, but not for mule deer. One big change this year is that hunters will no longer go to a check-in station with their animals. The coronavirus pandemic has led Game and Parks to go to a strictly online check-in this year. Deer permits and more information on the season and the online check-in available online at the Nebraska Game and Parks website outdoornebraska.gov.
