WILD TURKEYS. WILDLY POPULAR IN NEBRASKA.

Why is Nebraska famous for turkey hunting? Well, it starts with our huge population of turkeys — including our famous Merriam's — and the one million acres of publicly accessible land they roam. And our three over-the-counter permits mean you get to take home a trio of Nebraska toms. Lucky you. Nebraska is great for young hunters, too, with youth permits for $8.  

 

Nebraska's home to the best turkey hunting in the nation, but talk is cheap. The proof is out here. Find out for yourself this season.
