I'm looking to make my first trip to nebraska and am looking for a little help. Let me preface this by saying, I am not looking for specific information, and don't expect to recieve any. I am a broke young man who lives to duck hunt and luckily am able to hunt about 55 days a season. I have been goin to arkansas, kansas, and missouri for years, and am looking to expand further north. My plan at this point is for myself and three of my friends to leave out the first weekend in november and hunt for 5 days, then return. I have kansas down pat, but from my experience it is often slow and overcrowded this time of year. So, I am trying to educate myself on nebraska to have options when the time comes.
thus far, I have been mainly looking at the rainwater basin and the platte river areas. we are driving from georgia, so the more south or east the better. I have printed off information/maps/etc. on nearly all the public land I can find in these areas of the state. We will be bringing a small jon boat and motor strapped to the top of the vehicle, to allow hunting on some of the bigger reservoirs if needed. We should be set up to field hunt as well.
I guess my main questions are this, what is the water looking like out there? I've read that the rainfall has a huge impact on the quality of hunting. How is the hunting typically this time of year? Are there any other general areas I should be looking at?
Thanks for the responses, feel free to pm me if I can offer any help about states to the south of yall.
