Medicine Creek Hunting


category : Hunting
In the fall, hunters find that Medicine Creek is one of the finest public hunting areas in the state. Its wildlife lands lie in the heart of southwest Nebraska's pheasant and quail range. Over 5, 500 acres have been extensively managed for wildlife habitat. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation have planted over 50,000 trees and shrubs in recent years, concentrating on plantings that will benefit both game and nongame species.;

Pheasant and quail hunting are generally excellent early and late in the season. As private land habitat deteriorates from late winter punishment, pheasants and quail turn to the managed public habitat at Medicine Creek, resulting in some heavy concentrations of upland birds.

Mature stands of trees give bow hunters ample opportunity to zero in on the numerous white-tailed deer that roam the area, and firearm hunters en;joy excellent sport each year on both whitetails and mule deer. There is also a growing population of Merriam's turkeys in the creek area.
