This page/section is in "content update" construction - check back for more complete information - soon!

Waterfowl hunters should, before leaving an area:

  • Thoroughly check waders, boots, decoys, boat, dogs, clothing and anything else that came into contact with water.
  • Remove as much of the mud and vegetation as possible before heading out.
  • Bulb-shaped decoy anchors can help reduce snagging of aquatic plants.
  • Use native plants, instead of Phragmites, for blinds.

Invasive species such as houndstongue and musk thistle are threatening the habitat required by upland species.

Upland hunters should sidestep infested areas:

  • Avoid driving or walking through areas infested with invasive species
  • Take a different route.
  • Clean mud, seeds, and vegetation off your vehicle, pets and boots before going hunting.

Garlic mustard and European buckthorn are becoming all too familiar in woodland habitat, but some invasive species are not here yet – such as the emerald ash borer. This and other invasive insects can wipe out Nebraska’s forest habitat.
