    Not yes but hell yes! Nebraska desperately needs a youth only deer weekend.

    While I could careless if they allow other guns during muzzleloader I will say this will increase success rate and maybe even significantly so. Why?

    One ignition failures on cartridge guns is almost nothing while even the best modern muzzleloaders are susceptible to occasional ignition issues

    Two. You might be suprised how many deer are killed with second or third shots. Typically with a front stuffer you don’t have time for another shot.

    Again I could careless if they allow them or not but I can understand why they would be hesitant.

    Agreed. Lots of bucks get killed on the last days of ones hunt simply because deer meat taste better than stewing a tag.

    I’m thinking they should sell one either or permit to each person that is good for every season. Kind of like the state wide permits but only one buck allowed per person. Anyone wanting to shoot more than one deer will have to shoot does. This will allow you to hunt any season you want for a quality buck in any season. This will make hunters to be a little more picky on the buck they shoot allowing them to mature a little more knowing they only get one buck. Any extra deer harvested will have to be does.
    i know a lot of guys that shoot two bucks each yr and no does. This plan will limit them to one buck, and any extra will have to be does. This will eventually increase the age and buck population and increase the doe harvest.

    I’d love to see a youth rifle season/weekend.

    I'm 100% behind suggestion #4. I love muzzleloader season but I think we could safely call it a slug gun season at this point. Just my opinion. I could see if you have already bought a smokeless muzzleloader and dont want anymore competition why you wouldn't.

    I like the idea of unfilled rifle tags carrying over to mz. They do this in the mdca units already. I think it would promote harvesting mature bucks rather than shooting what ever you see because the tag goes to waste if unfilled. There also needs to be a cap on state wide buck tags especially for non resident hunters

    Everybody can hunt 1/3 of the year...archery tags are unlimited

    #2–why just rifle? Why not for all tags, including the archery tags? From a health of the herd management angle, how does your idea control populations?

    #2–NGPC data consistently shows that harvested bucks are older now compared to a decade ago (on average). If you want to shoot an older buck, so be it. Don’t dictate that idea to others who don’t have 1/3 of the year to hunt.

    #1–archery tags are already good for 4 months, why not just make them good year around already? When is enough enough?

    To me there are contradictions in your number 2 and 5. You are trying to limit the buck tags in rifle season, but maintain your ability to shoot two bucks thru the muzzleloader season. Those two concepts seem contradictory to me.
    Also, the Statewide Buck tag already accomplishes what you are wanting in 5, just cost more upfront.

    One more thing, your number 2 idea would probably have to be a draw like they use to have where those that don’t draw a buck tag would get priority the next year. So you likely couldn’t get a buck tag every year.
