Reservation Hunting

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about coming down to NE for this spring's turkey hunt. However, looking at the fish and game HSOforum they say there is not much public land available. I heard there is reservation land that can be hunted by the public. Is there a resouce that I can confirm this with? Thanks for any help.

There's tons of public land in NW NE. PineRidge(51,000+ acres) and others. More than a guy could possibly hunt in a season. Dig a little deeper and you will find what you're looking for in regards to public land. Check out WMA, WPA, Walk in areas, State Forest, National Forests and grasslands. Unfortunately these aren't all listed on the NE Game and Parks site.

I would also get a Nebraska Gazzetter (Scheels has them) they show all of the public hunting spots with species availble to hunt. You can look on Game and Parks HSOforum to get brochues sent to you of the Public hunting lands and the CRP-MAP booklet that shows all of the CRP grounds available for Public hunting as well. What area of the state are you looking to hunt?

Thanks guys. Looks like I need to do a little more digging. We were looking at the northeast corner of the state (since it'll be MN and WI guys) and the biggest appeal was the distance compared to the black hills. From some of the population maps I've seen the turkeys appear to be found near the rivers, so I'll concentrate my search efforts there. Again, thanks for the advice.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
