Opening Day First Hunt by Norris Marshall, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Chair

My wife and had a great dog, Jazz, for 12 years. A female black Lab, she was an awesome companion and hunting dog. But as things go, we had to put her down a couple years ago. So here we were a year later picking from a litter of puppies whose daddy came from our Jazz. That was a year ago, and that little bundle of puppy has grown to be a big, rambunctious, slobbering hunting buddy. Her official name …

Hire My Deer Processor

A few years ago while looking for a deer processor, I was referred to Todd Hanson in eastern Nebraska by some folks at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. I called Todd and asked him one very important question: “Do you guarantee that I will get my deer back if I send it to you?” “Absolutely,” he replied, and we have had a wonderful relationship since. I mostly have him grind my shoulders and hind quarters, but he also has …

Combodacious

Got to share some photos with you today.  Fall is a a great time to both hunt and fish in Nebraska!  To prove it, my friend Steve has been telling me about the success he and his grandson have been having this fall.  First, they slipped up to the Gavins Point tailwaters to snag a paddlefish. In spite of government shut-downs and predictions of the flood gates being open and the best paddlefish snagging area being off-limits to anglers, the …

Hunting is about the Process, the Experience

I love hunting in Nebraska, especially fall wild turkey hunting. To me, it’s the process, it’s the experience, that I enjoy the most. I’ve always said and continue to say that “huntin’ is not all about the killin’.”  It’s about the intrinsic things that are connected to the hunt that some hunters overlook or take for granted. It’s about the relationships – the friendships –  developed with landowners. It’s about noting any old buildings and items around the farmstead and …
