What to Do in December Time Well Spent D on't let chilly temps stop you from getting outdoors and having fun this month. There's still plenty of hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities, not to mention a lot of fun holiday-themed park events. For a full list of Game and Parks events across the state, visit ■ PHOTO BY BOB GRIER Late-season Pheasant Hunting Throughout the month Statewide There are still plenty of birds out there, and some of the most exciting, memorable hunts are still ahead. To increase your success during this time of the year, think and hunt a little differently. This could include simple things like working the cover in an opposite direction than usual, hunting at a different time of the day, or even just beginning at the spot in the fi eld where you normally end. Be sure to wear plenty of orange and avoid any unnecessary loud noises that would alert the birds. Wildlife Viewing Throughout the month Statewide Bighorn sheep are currently in rut – come out to Fort Robinson and Chadron state parks for a chance to see it. If you're interested in wildlife that is a little easier to spot, consider participating in a Christmas Bird Count event. Contact an Audubon center near you for more information. Also, stay tuned to the Nebraska Game and Parks calendar page for additional bird watching events. By Renae Blum PHOTO BY JEFF KURRUS 32 NEBRASKAland • DECEMBER 2017
