Waterfowl Hunting in Nebraska

A Canadian Goose flying lowNebraska sits in the middle of a major flyway for many different species of waterfowl, including geese and ducks. It is not uncommon at times to see tens of thousands of birds some nights during the migration season.

Waterfowl hunting requires a good and thorough understanding of the migration habits in the area you are planning to hunt, as well as decoys, a well trained dog and someone who can call them in close.

Each species has different physical characteristics and migration patterns.

Most hunting for geese is done in blinds or pits. Decoys are a must as they tend to follow the saying "birds of a feather flock together". NEOGA Members who offer goose hunting will have additional information on your waterfowl hunting needs.
