Course Outline

Game species in Nebraska include upland game, waterfowl, turkey, big game, and furbearers.

Two furbearers may be trapped but not hunted. They are:

  • Beaver
  • Muskrat

These furbearers may be trapped or hunted:

  • Badger
  • Bobcat*
  • Gray Fox
  • Long-Tailed Weasel
  • Mink
  • Raccoon*
  • Red Fox*
  • Striped Skunk
  • Virginia Opossum*

*Nebraska also has running seasons for these animals. During a running season, the furbearer may be chased with dogs but may not be killed. This lets hunters and their dogs practice for hunting season.
