The area where you are allowed to hunt depends on the species being hunted and whether you are on private land or public land.
- In Nebraska, over 95% of all land is privately owned. You may hunt on private lands during legal hunting seasons only if you have permission from the landowner to hunt on his or her land.
- To hunt on public lands, refer to the Nebraska Hunting Guide for maps and specific information by species.
- Unless posted otherwise, you may not hunt in:
- Nebraska wayside areas
- State and federal refuges
- Wildlife reserves
