    Is it easy to obtain an OTC rifle tag for a speed goat?

    Hoping to start planning an out of state hunt at least once a year, definitely gonna look into Nebraska!

    @Rick I’m not going to say it difficult, just takes some time. Nebraska uses a preference point system to award permits. Which is nice that it isn’t pure lottery. The hunting guides found at outdoornebraska.gov have it all laid out.

    @Tsali I accidentally replied to Rick Q with a response to your question. Should be in the thread below.

    @Nate so it’s an all draw system I was hoping to do an OTC it’s a little more stream line and I was going to diy it I like a challenge but that is for the info

  • Nate's avatar

    @Tsali that you’ll want to look into a bit more because I know they sell doe tags OTC (that sell out quick). Not sure if that’s available to non residents or not. The guides should have that info.

    @Nate was hoping to get a ram (not sure if that’s right) I’m a bit picky I’m thinking Wyoming or Colorado now

  • Nate's avatar

    @Tsali definitely going to find the record trophies in WY

  • Tsali's avatar

    @Nate that’s what I’ve heard but it would be my first out of state hunt so I wouldn’t be to picky on size

    I’ve been looking at Nebraska for a few years. It looks like the bulk of public ground is in the north central part of the state. Is the public ground crawling with hunters? Can a guy get permission by knocking on doors? I work with a guy that has permission to hunt a property near Valentine. He made it sound like I would be wasting my time trying to do any good on the public ground. I’d love to figure it out though. He takes good mule deer just about every year.

    @Rob it really depends on what season you want to hunt. Deer hunting during rifle season is very popular. The public lands are full of orange opening weekend (but mellow out significantly past that) and its tough to get permission on private for rifle deer. However, muzzleloader thing open up a lot. I hunted McKelvie muzzloader two years ago horse back - covered 22 miles in two days. Didn’t see a single person. Turkey season - public lands won’t be busy and you can find private land to hunt too. Antelope is open everywhere. The majority of ranchers are more than happy to let anybody shoot them (they’re hard on fences).

    @Nate thanks. That’s great info. Always better to get it from someone who knows.

  • Nate's avatar

    @Rob I’m located at Valentine as well. If you ever make it out, consider me a helping hand. I’m happy to help out and show/tell you everything I know about navigating a hunt out here.

  • Rob's avatar

    @Nate thanks! I appreciate that. I’ll extend the same offer if WV is anywhere you ever plan to hunt or fish.
