4 | Big Game Info: 402-471-0641 Deer harvest and hunter success improved in 2015, and herds have grown following the epizootic hemorrhagic disease losses of 2012 and 2013. Hunters harvested a record number of age-3-and-older bucks, so the outlook for 2016 is quite good. Antelope and elk are doing very well in most units, so residents who draw a permit should have a good chance for success. Good luck to all.
