Nebraska Hunters Encouraged to Register On State’s Antlerless Hunter Database

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (Game and Parks) is reminding hunters to register on the state’s Antlerless Hunter Database for the upcoming 2021 seasons. In 2019, Game and Parks launched a tool to help landowners address deer populations on their property. To keep hunter information current for landowners, all hunters must register in the program annually.

The Database connects hunters who wish to harvest antlerless deer with landowners experiencing damage from deer on their property. Not all participants will get called by landowners, but in the event a landowner needs additional harvest, the database connects them with antlerless hunters. Registration for 2021 is now open.

Landowners and hunters are important to managing wildlife; together with Game and Parks, they are the driving force for wildlife conservation in Nebraska. Landowners provide habitat and access for hunting game species. Readily available permits and long seasons provide tremendous opportunities to harvest deer in Nebraska, especially antlerless deer. Hunters wishing to pursue antlerless deer can register for up to five counties they are willing to hunt. Hunters also must list their city and state of residence.
