Pressey WMA Closed to Target Shooting on Oct. 25-26

LINCOLN – The shooting range at Pressey Wildlife Management Area will be temporarily closed during the opening weekend of pheasant season, Oct. 25-26.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is concerned for the safety of hunters in this area. Many hunters are expected to hunt the prime upland game habitat south of the shooting range. The parking lot near the shooting range will remain open to hunters, but target shooting will be prohibited.

Pressey is located 5 miles north of Oconto on Nebraska Highway 21 in Custer County.
