As we turn the calendar to September, many summer activities come to an end but the door opens to other opportunities. September 1st is the hunting season opener for dove, teal, grouse and archery deer season.
Nebraska Game and Parks spokesperson Greg Wagner says many residents have fishing trips planned for the Labor Day weekend. The forecast calls for a chance of rain in parts of Nebraska and that may put a damper on some of those outings.
Wagner says, “We are dodging storms before and after some of these rain events. Sometimes they are a little heavy, especially before there is good fishing. We have the feeding frenzy going on. These fish are putting on the feed bag, so to speak, for the winter coming up.” He says you may have to work a bit harder for that catch by using big bait and lures because “Mother Nature’s buffet is already there”.
Hunters are advised to check with Game and Parks to make sure they have the proper permits and regulations.
