Wading in the platte

Postby duckwizard » Mon Dec 01, 2008 1:56 am

Hey guys, i just bought a nebraska license for the first time, i hunt mainly in southwest iowa , anyways i was looking to start hunting the platte around the plattsmouth area, and people kept telling me that wading in the platte was a bad idea because there are sinkholes that can suck you in like quicksand... Anyone hear of this? Is wading in safe enough? ... All input is appreciated. :thumbsup:

I just did it yesterday.

You got a new boat launch at the plattsmouth boat launch and come up river and check out the sandbars where the platte meets the mighty mo.

The duck hunting has not picked up in plattsmouth yet just to let u know.

Usually when everything freezes up and Iowa is closed.

We should hit the fields down at schilling also.
