LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reminds hunters that updates to the Public Access Atlas are available online. It also recommends hunters check for updates before heading out to hunt on properties.
The atlas is an annual publication that includes information on land enrolled in the Open Fields and Waters (OFW) program, which allows private land to be open to hunters and anglers for walk-in access. It also provides information on public state and federal lands open to hunting and fishing. Printed atlases are available where hunting and fishing permits are sold.
Several updates have been made to the maps since the 2014 atlas was printed in September. These updates include additional sites enrolled in the OFW Small Grain Wheat Stubble Management Program and a small number of acres that are no longer part of the OFW program.
Visit OutdoorNebraska.org and search “Public Access Atlas” to view the most up-to-date printable map sheets, Public Access Atlas booklet, Google Earth files, and mobile app instructions.
