LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Fall turkey season opens later this month in Nebraska.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says hunters may shoot turkeys with a fall turkey or youth fall turkey permit, which allows hunters to take two turkeys starting Sept. 15 through Jan. 31 with either archery equipment or a shotgun.

Fall turkey permits are $30 for residents, $109 for nonresidents and $8 for youth younger than 16, including issuing fee.

Nebraska's turkey population has exploded over the last decade, and turkeys can be found in all of Nebraska's 93 counties. Hunters will find good turkey-hunting opportunities with 300 wildlife management areas across the state and approximately 300,000 acres of walk-in public access to private land in the Open Fields and Waters Program.
