Lincoln, Neb. – Nebraskans may refer to the 2011 Public Access Atlas to find hunting areas for the upcoming statewide pheasant, quail and partridge seasons, which open Saturday, Oct. 29.
Hunters will find in the Public Access Atlas public hunting lands, including wildlife management areas, and private lands open to public walk-in access, such as Open Fields and Waters sites. Hunting these upland birds is not allowed on state and federal refuges and sanctuaries.
The daily bag limit for pheasants is three and the possession limit is 12. Only rooster pheasants may be harvested. The limits for partridge are the same as pheasants, but the limits for quail are six in the daily bag limit and 24 in possession.
The seasons run through Jan. 31, 2012.
Other resources for hunters are the 2011 Hunting Guide and the 2011 Upland Game Hunting Outlook. Both may be viewed at OutdoorNebraska.org.
