Nebraska’s Best Walleye Spot
I need a new lake to hammer some walleye. Eastern South Dakota did not treat me very well last year and it is not like it was 20 years ago when I first went up there to fish. The one advantage to the area is that there are a lot of lakes to fish all within a 30 mile radius of Webster, SD. The Merritt Reservoir in northwestern Nebraska is an oasis amid the giant oasis of the sandhills. The second deepest lake in Nebraska is just a few miles south of the Snake River Falls and the Samule R. McKelvie National Forest. Surrounded by gentle bluffs, there exists 44 mils of tree-lined shores baked in sugar-sand beaches. The lake is 11 miles long, and with 3000 acres of pure waters, this is a fishing adventure land. Maximum depth is 111 feet with an average depth of 25 feet. This is outstanding and makes

The Snow Geese Have Returned
A couple of decades ago the refuge at Desoto Bend was a stop over for the migrating snow geese and other birds. I knew some farmers that cultivated some of the refuge and they were required to leave 1/3 of the crop on the ground. Well to waterfowl, corn is like cocaine and they will gorge themselves on it. A beautiful facility was erected with viewing areas out over the water where you could come and see all the migratory wild fowl. It went unused for several years, but now the birds are back. There is not a few thousand but hundreds of thousands of snow geese with some blues mixed in, and my wife and I drove up to DeSoto Bend to see the birds. It was phenomenal. Every year they go through, and now they are stopping at DeSoto Bend Wildlife Refuge just east of Blair, Nebraska. That is a 45 minute
Ducks and the WRP
A close friend of mine who is an avid duck hunter is in the process of developing his own private duck hunting hole. I hate to use the term old friends, but we have known each other for decades and he is an expert when is comes to hunting ducks and especially mallard ducks. His experience goes back to when he was thirteen years old and he hunted on a well known commercial hunting site and became a close friend of the owner, and still is. He was the senior member in the club I belonged to for seventeen years. Last year before the season, we lost the owner of the land we hunted on who also managed the club. This club had been in existence for 25+ years and consisted of 80 acres with 40 acres of water and less than a mile from the Missouri River. It has a well and a
The Moose Hunt is On
It’s on this year. My moose hunt was set up in January and I was disappointed that I was placed on a standby list for this year, but confirmed in 2019. We came home one evening and there was an e-mail from Mike Ukrainetz stating the the person he was holding for the week of October 23rd this year had backed out and I could have the spot. That was an easy decision as we did not want to wait over a year to make this hunt. So, we are confirmed to make the trip up to Spirit River for a first class moose hunt with Mike’s Outfitting. What I know of this animal is that they are really big and can get really mean. Now that is interesting as I enjoy shooting dangerous game. The main element of the animal is they are number 1. on the wild game meat menu
