LINCOLN – Users of the state’s wildlife management areas should be aware of the presence of hunters on those areas during all hunting seasons, but especially for the Nov. 15-23 firearm deer season, when approximately 70,000 hunters will be in the field.
Bird watchers, horseback riders, hikers, wildlife viewers and anyone else using those areas are encouraged to use common courtesy by being aware of hunters using the area for the safety of all. Hunter numbers are highest on the opening weekend of the season and during the early and late times of the day. Other users might want to avoid these times.
Area users should make themselves as visible as possible by wearing blaze orange or brightly colored clothing.
