A little story...

Well, here's a short intro to my planned 2006 Nebraska Rifle Season...

I have spent a few years looking for a large Mule Deer buck, still have not found him... Had one opportunity for a nice one back in 2001... So this years plan, based on the fact that I don't have that much time to drive out west for 6 hours each way to scout and do my proper homework...

Opening weekend hunting in Banner/Scottsbluff county Nebraska... Looking for a big mature Mule Deer Buck... If no opportunities show up, we'll try again next year...

Then, we'll come back and hunt southeast nebraska for a trophy whitetail buck... I I don't get a crack at the 6x6 who eluded us last year, I'll put some meat in the freezer with a nice corn fed doe...

So hoping for a nebraska Grand Slam on deer this year, but we'll see... Meat in the freezer is just as good...

N.B

How far East do those Mulies roam?
Gretna Home of the Dragons! I have a sister that lives just east of you in Council Bluffs. If you were to head down Hwy. 75 South you would end up in my old stomping grounds and where I do most of my hunting around Holton. Great deer around here as I'm sure yours are just as great with those corn fed specimens Big smile

How about your pheasants? We use to come up your way when I was in college to chase those pheasants with alot of success! Pheasants have always been few and far between around here that's why we headed your way lol

Surely you have some pics of some past hunts you'd like to share Think

I hunt down in Johnson county by Tecumseh with a good friend of mine.. Right down Hwy 50... Pheasants suck... Only worth hunting on opening day in my opinion... I do shoot some geese out by Fremont and quite a few ducks... Not so much time for the waterfowling the last few years, my boys are 2 and 4 and keep us very busy... Add to that I tournament fish all year, so my hunting has been abbreviated to Nebraska Rifle Deer for the last couple... Can't pass that Buck Fever...
