Western Nebraska Turkey Hunting

Western Nebraska Turkey Hunting

Every turkey hunter dreams of the Grand Slam.  Make it complete with harvesting the rare Hybrid of the Sandhill’s.  These birds are a combination of the southern Rios and the Western Merriam’s.  Here at the Rackett we have a huge amount of birds.  With multiple areas of wooded landscapes and water sources, large flocks of turkeys make for a ton of action.  There’s nothing like the sound of that first spring goggle and the youth hunts that are offered by the state create and opportunity for a youngster to be first one in the woods chasing these long beards.  Both archery and shotgun offer seasons well over a month in length.  Enjoy a hunt of nonstop turkey action, screaming birds, and long beards.  This would be the perfect time to book a combination turkey/pheasant hunt as our CSA pheasant hunting is still running during the beginning of your turkey bow hunt.
