Scottsbluff
« on: March 11, 2009, 12:07:00 PM »
Hello there. I have been looking at the Scottsbluff area as a place I might try some hunting. I would be doing a public land DIY hunt. Also hoping to visit some relatives there (they don't hunt).  Any one from that area could give me some in put about some WMA's such as Cedar Canyon etc. I would appreciate a Post on this thread or a PM.  Thanks

I don't know much about the Scottsbluff area, but north of there an hour or so, there is a ton of public land and you can bunk at Ft. Robinson.  I've not done it so I can't offer particulars, but I'm intrigued about the possibilities.

www.ngpc.state.ne.us/                            I dont know much about the Scottsbluff area but you should be able to find what you are looking for there. If you send the Game warden an Email he will usually get back to you within a couple of days. Hope this helps.
Its not the size of the animal you hunt that matters. Its how you hunt the animal.

Broken arrow, thanks. I had checked out that site and saw some nice satellite photos of WMA's Just wondering if any one has hunted around that area or even the county.

Fort Robinson State Park is a great place for a bowhunt.  If I have the numbers right, the park has about 22,000 acres, with several thousand acres open to hunting, and about another almost 8,000 acres of adjoining federal wilderness area land (Soldier Creek Wilderness Area) that is all open to hunting.  Plenty of whitetails in creek bottoms.  Mulies still outnumber whitetails about 2 to 1.  Also, pretty good turkey hunting, brook trout and rainbow trout fishing.  Plus primitive camping, pads with electrical hookups, public showers,and various cabins and rooms at the main lodge.  They have resident bighorn sheep herd, elk, pronghorn, and fenced herds of buffalo and one of only a few remaining herds genetically pure longhorn cattle in the world.  A lot of really cool history as well.  Numerous other public lands nearby such as Ponderosa WMA, East Ash Creek, Gifford-Baker WMA, and others.  Chadron State Park is only about 30 minutes east of Fort Robinson.  My Dad, brothers and I have rifle hunted Fort Rob every year since 1993.  I have only made one bowhunting trip there but hope to go again this year with a friend.  This area is located in the Pine Ridge Area which extends into South Dakota, which has ridges topped by trees that escape prairie fires. Check out information on the Nebraska Game and Parks web page as suggested by Broken Arrow.  The folks at the Fort are usually very helpful and friendly.
