Nebraska Extension press release

According to Nebraska Game and Parks, 97% of the land in Nebraska is privately owned. Obtaining access to private lands is one of the biggest challenges facing today’s hunters. Some landowners are hesitant, given the potential liability of allowing hunters on their property.

To address these challenges, Nebraska Extension, in partnership with U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, Quail Forever, and Pheasants Forever, will host a Hunting workshop for landowners on Oct. 13, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library, 1809 3rd Avenue.

The workshop will cover:

  • Nebraska recreation and agritourism laws
  • Ways to mitigate liability
  • Wildlife conservation programs
  • Interactions between hunting access and conservation programs

The workshop is free to attend, but registration is encouraged. To register, call the Panhandle Research & Extension Center at 308-632-1230.
