    Default South West Nebraska Mule Deer Help

    Hello all,
    I'm planning a hunt to the Frenchman unit in Nebraska this November and have hit road block after road block with it. I'm needing some advice about hunting the public land around McCook. The person I was supposed to go with backed out yesterday so I'm out of their land to hunt. I haven't been able to get out that way yet to scout public land since I live around the Omaha area. Also, i cant afford to lease private land.

    P.s. this is my first rifle deer hunt. So any tips or tricks pertaining to the WMAs around the McCook- Trenton area would be extremely helpful. Not looking for someone's honey hole.

    Thanks again.

    Get there early, walk to the hardest to reach places etc. Just try to work harder than the next guy. Might also try hunting all day, less pressure mid day.

    Have hunted around McCook the last 6 years. Mule deer on public land is going to be a tough row to hoe. They're all over on private. Great whitetail hunting on public over there.

    Well I had a blast. Got this guy opening morning at 0930. Couldn't have asked for a better first deer. Even though I'm 27, I still am thrilled with the opportunity to provide some fantastic meat for my family. Hoping to get out for late archery season to fill my doe tag yet this year, but even if I don't, I still have the trophy of a lifetime in my eyes.
