To buy a permit online, select a purpose for the permit, and then enter identification information to find or create a hunting profile. Once identified, and as long as no restrictions apply, you may purchase the necessary permits.

In addition to individual permits to hunt specific animals, hunters also require a Habitat stamp. When hunting waterfowl, you must have a Federal Migratory Bird stamp. When hunting fur-bearing animals, a Fur Harvest permit is required. Deer, elk and antelope permits require separate applications and the approval of the state before you can purchase them.

You may buy permits and stamps one season at a time or purchase several years' worth at a time for the best dollar value. Nebraskan residents at least 16 years of age and non-residents of any age require hunting permits and Habitat stamps.
