Gobblers, Largemouths, Morels and More in Less than a Week

Timing is everything when it comes to being successful bagging your quarry in Nebraska’s outdoor scene. But, one of the many reasons I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in my home state of Nebraska so much is its tremendous mixed bag potential when the weather cooperates and wild things come into alignment. In less than one week I have managed to have success with targeting three major quarries with some added bonuses.

I called in and shot two, big wild tom turkeys with the spring shotgun turkey season in full swing.



I managed to catch and release dozens of largemouth bass like this one with spring fishing action well underway.


I picked a batch of tasty morel mushrooms as the season for gathering morels kicks off in river bottom woodlands!


And, I took lots of cool pics of wildlife such as this male wood duck and adult bald eagle!



It doesn’t get much better than that in ANY outdoor lifestyle, now does it? Go outside and enjoy Nebraska’s great outdoors this spring! Make some memories! Oh, and take the kids!


Pets, too!


See you out there!
