Quick blog post today and I just want to call your attention to the January-February 2015 edition of NEBRASKAland magazine. You can see that edition on-line right now, just click on the cover:
As with every issue of NEBRASKAland, this edition is packed with lots of great pictures and great stories. If you do not subscribe, you really should, Subscribe or Renew .
Let me point out a couple of things in this issue that will be of interest. First of all, mountain lions are a hot topic in Nebraska and you are going to be hearing more about them in the news and in politics in the coming weeks. Sam Wilson is our state’s program manager for furbearers and carnivores, THE EXPERT on mountain lions, and in the Demystifying Mountain Lions story starting on page 30, Sam lays out THE FACTS on Nebraska mountain lions. You cannot go anywhere without hearing someone say something about Nebraska mountain lions; do me a favor, read the story in this issue of NEBRASKAland and learn the facts. It should be required reading for every Nebraska citizen!
While you are at it, if you are having a hard time deciding where to fish, you might want to page back to page 42, Fish Here Now.
That story couples some of the information from the annual Fishing Forecast with knowledge about the best times to fish for a variety of species on a variety of Nebraska waters and lays out a calendar for the best fishing in the state in the coming year. I am not a big fan of “outdoor reports” because they are dated and a great way to find out “you shoulda been here yesterday”. With some basic knowledge of fish behavior, movements, and the potential of various fisheries, any angler can be in the right spot at the right time and be the one making the fishing reports. I will follow those strategies in the coming year myself, as a matter of fact, I helped write the story!
This current issue of NEBRASKAland includes all that and a whole lot more about Nebraska’s history, natural resources, hunting and fishing all illustrated with some great photography. Read it!
