More waterfowl hunting seasons are about to open in many parts of Nebraska. The following seasons open Oct. 6: dark goose in the East and North Central units, light goose statewide, white-fronted goose statewide, and duck and coot in zones 2 and 4.
The youth waterfowl season is Oct. 6-7 in Zone 1.
For more information on the seasons, read the 2012 Waterfowl Guide, which is available where permits are sold and at OutdoorNebraska.org. Use of nontoxic shot is required.
Residents age 16 and up and all nonresidents who hunt waterfowl in the state are required to have a valid Nebraska hunt permit, habitat stamp, waterfowl stamp and Harvest Information Program number. Hunters age 16 and up must have a federal duck stamp. Permits and stamps may be purchased at OutdoorNebraska.org or at Game and Parks offices. Duck stamps are available at U.S. post offices.
