It's way late to be starting research on this, but my wife and I just had a hole open up in our spring schedula and we've decided to work in a Nebaska hunt on our way to South Dakota in early May. We've never hunted there before, so I';ve been doing some prelim research online and the southwet part of the state, specifically the Republican River drainage within 40 miles either way of McCook, looks good so far. There are five or six WMAs surrounding flood control lakes in that neck of the woods - Medicine Creek, Red Willow, Swanson, Enders, Harlan County, maybe some more I haven't sniffed out yet.
Before we commit to this part of the state, though, I wanted to see if there's anybody on here who can tell us if we're on the right track. I expect these are mostly Rio strain birds in this part of the world, but subspecies really isn't important. What I'm really looking for is confirmation that there are decent turkey numbers and decent availability of public land in the area.
Anybody out there know anything about this part of the world? Thanks -
