Upland bird hunters will be enjoying the pheasant season with friends and family this fall. The season runs Oct. 26-Jan. 31, 2014.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has the following reminders so hunters have a fun and safe experience:

  • It is illegal to hunt or shoot from any public roadway, bridge or right-of-way.
  • It is illegal to hunt on private property without first obtaining permission.
  • It is illegal to hunt within 100 yards (200 yards with a rifle) of an inhabited dwelling or livestock feedlot without first obtaining permission.
  • It is illegal to have a loaded shotgun in a vehicle.
  • Load and unload the shotgun in the field, not at the vehicle. Recheck the gun at the vehicle following the hunt.
  • Always know where the muzzle is pointed and never allow it to be pointed at anyone.
  • Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it.
  • Always know what is beyond or behind your target.
  • Be sure you have a clear zone of fire before pulling the trigger.
  • Make yourself more visible by wearing hunter orange clothing and head gear.

Hunt permits may be purchased at OutdoorNebraska.org.
