The first day of Nebraska's firearm deer season produced similar results to last year, though numbers were more encouraging in the northeast part of the state.
As of 4:30 p.m., Northeast District Manager Tom Welstead reported 61 check-ins at the Norfolk site. The same location had 80 deer harvests on the first day of the 2012 season, and Welstead expected hunters to surpass that number by the 8 p.m. closing time.
