Stubble Access Guide, highlighting additional lands open to public hunting, now available
The 2017 Southwest Nebraska Stubble Access Guide, which details more than 24,000 acres open to public hunting and trapping access, is now available.
Published annually as an addendum to the Public Access Atlas, which provides maps of all land open to public hunting and trapping access in Nebraska, the Stubble Access Guide provides maps of wheat and milo stubble fields recently enrolled in the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Open Fields and Waters Program.
Tall, undisturbed stubble has been shown to provide multiple wildlife benefits to pheasants, quail and other wildlife from the end of summer through winter. Although pheasants spend a considerable amount of time in stubble fields, these fields are typically underutilized by hunters.
