1. Duck Hunting
Ducks Unlimited lists several properties open for public duck hunting around the state. All rules and regulations must be followed to maintain hunting privileges on DU properties. These properties are small, ranging from 40 acres to 160. One of the largest hunting areas is the Bergan property about 3.5 miles east of Eldorado in Clay County, while one of the smallest properties is the 40-acre Morgan tract of land in Clay County, adjacent to the Smith Waterfowl Production Area.

2. Harlan County
One of the most rural regions of Nebraska is also one of the most plentiful for white-tailed deer, according to the Omaha World-Herald. Located in southern Nebraska, Harlan County features more than 20,000 acres of public land controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers around the Harlan County Reservoir. This fishing haven attracts scores of white-tails, particularly in the Republican River Valley, making it popular with area hunters.

3. Triple T Ranch

Most of the state's turkey and pheasant hunting takes place on private land. Triple T Ranch has the reputation for being one of the most popular private hunting locales for both game birds. Located in the northeastern corner of Nebraska, the ranch features more than 6,000 acres of open land in the hills of Boyd County.

4. Sioux and Dawes County
The elk population is slowly growing in Nebraska. According to Outdoor Nebraska, there are now more than 3,000 of the state's largest big-game species roaming the countryside. While many are found on private lands, Oldaker Outfitting reports the best bull and cow elk hunting is found in Sioux and Dawes County in the state's northwest corner. Hat Creek and Ash Creek offer more than 12,000 acres of elk hunting thanks to a mix of open prairie, rocky canyons, streams, creeks, swamps and ponds, fields, and badlands.
