Hunting Workshop for Landowners Oct. 13 in Scottsbluff

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 USDA NRCS, Quail Forever, and Pheasants Forever, will host a hunting workshop for landowners from 9-10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library, 1809 3rd Ave.

The workshop will cover:

  • Nebraska recreation and agrotourism 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 and Extension Center at 308-632-1230.
