LINCOLN, Neb. – Spring turkey hunting permits are available from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Nebraska offers the best turkey hunting opportunities in the entire country. Nebraska offers birds in every county of the state, including the highly-sought-after Merriam’s in some areas. The state also offers plentiful and affordable permits, long seasons, great public access and $5 permits for youth.
