With a variety of wetland habitats that ducks and geese use both during fall and spring migration, Nebraska waterfowl hunting is not only exceptional, but there aren’t many hunters either. Sounds great right? Well, there’s one issue. This state doesn’t have as much public land as some of the other flyway states, so hunting with an outfitter is recommended. That’s not to say that you can’t find some great places to hunt if you scout and do some research.
Nebraska Waterfowl Hunting
- The Nebraska waterfowl hunting season starts with teal in September, the light goose conservation order in February and the regular duck and goose seasons in between.
- More than 15 different species of ducks, including: mallards; blue-winged teal; green-winged teal; gadwall; Northern pintail; American wigeon; Northern shovelers; wood ducks; and occasional redheads; ring-necked ducks; and canvasbacks.
- Five species of geese: Canada geese; Specklebelly geese; Snow; Blue and Ross’s geese.
- Hunting a mixed bag of geese, ducks, and sandhill cranes from a comfortable heated blind is one of life’s great pleasures.
- Exceptional upland bird hunting as well.
