Landowners in the Southwest Focus on Pheasants Area who were accepted in the last Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) sign-up should contact the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission or Pheasants Forever for their sign-up incentives.
Those landowners should call Andy Houser at 308-345-4163, or T.J. Walker or Justin Haahr at 308-535-8025.
The goals of Focus on Pheasants, a joint effort by the Game and Parks, Pheasants Forever and resource and conservation partners, are to increase and improve pheasant habitat, increase bird populations and provide additional public hunting access on private land.
The Southwest Focus Area includes portions of northwest Hitchcock, southeast Hayes and northwest Red Willow counties.
CRP assists farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers to use their environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits.
