100 Best Public-Land Hunts: Nebraska

By Scott Bestul

Kansas Bend Wildlife Management Area
: southeast Nebraska
Size: 1,056 acres
ZIP: 68421

About five miles downstream from Hamburg Bend, Kansas Bend is the smallest of the new Missouri River WMAs. A mix of deciduous timber, grassland, marshy areas and cropland are the main deer habitat on this three-mile stretch of bottomland. Bordering areas of private land contain cropland and steep river bluffs. Hunting pressure is light, especially mid-week, and unlimited permits are available for archery, muzzleloader and firearms buck-only.

Langdon Bend Wildlife Management Area
Location: southeast Nebraska
Size: 1,307 acres
ZIP: 68414

In eastern Nebraska, river corridors typically have greater deer densities than any other habitat, according to Kit Hams, big game program manager for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. Langdon Bend is no exception. Nearly half of this management area's acreage is devoted to row crops, and the rest is dominated by bottomland hardwoods and open pasture. Like the two WMAs upstream, hunting pressure is light on this four-mile long stretch of bottomland, especially on weekdays, and permits are easy to come by for archery, muzzleloader and firearms hunting.
