Nebraska is another state

Nebraska is another state that I like to keep a close watch on as I have plans to hunt deer there also. I have done a lot of research on the Pine ridge area and am thinking of a late December muzzle loader hunt next year. Of course I am thinking of a lot of different hunts next year but this one is near the top of the list for being the one to do.

They say the hunting pressure is extreme in the rifle season so that is one of the reasons to choose something later.
