The Situation

The whitetail deer is one of the most sought after big game species in America. Populations of this species in the Midwestern region of the United States are at an all time high. The creation of edge effect through conversion by the farming industry of vast regions of prairie interspersed with woody draws to optimal “edge effect” characterized by row crows intermingled with timbered bottoms. Combining farming, the dust bowl era, widespread planting of wind breaks, and the soil and water conservation movement that produced ubiquitous farm ponds has resulted in an optimum mosaic of areas for feeding, escapement and hiding for whitetail deer. Accordingly, the whitetail deer has increased dramatically in numbers and range over the past half to three quarters of a century in the United States. Nowhere is the above-described scenario more evident than in the southeastern region of Nebraska.


The Seasons

Normally, bow season opens in mid September and runs to the end of the year except for closure during the 9-day rifle season. The peak of the fall rut occurs 6 to 8 weeks after opening or in late October to mid November. Rifle deer opens about the second weekend in November and runs for 9 days. The black powder season runs the entire month of December. Black powder season always open December 1st, Visitation of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission web site ( by late spring will verify actual opening dates of bow and rifle seasons. Nebraska offers a seasons choice tag that allows one to hunt with bow and fill the tag with black powder. During rifle season, a statewide buck tag also is available to non-residents. Because all antlered tags are normally filled by resident Nebraska deer hunters in the Big Blue hunting area only statewide buck tagsare available during rifle season. These are twice the cost of normal $209 non-resident tagss. Deer can be processed at the facility or taken to a nearby to process for sausage and jerky at Dan’s meat market and deli in nearby Table Rock, Nebraska.
