In the Wild with Greg Wagner


TURKEY HUNTING AND HISTORY OF THE LAND by Greg Wagner

Bob Benson of Omaha who works for Nebraska Travel and Tourism with us at Game and Parks, near Henry Doorly Zoo, shares the pic of his attractive Merriam’s jake turkey taken in Custer County, NE. In the background, is the private cabin he and his hunting partners stay in that was built in 1876! This cabin is not far from the site of the Mitchell and Ketchum murder/burning that occurred in November of 1878. Read about the incident here: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nebuffal/bassett/p373.htm

Bob, a history buff, says that it is always fun and interesting to learn about the land you’re hunting. If only the walls of that cabin could talk!

Make it a point to learn a little history about the land YOU are hunting. Visit with your landowners. Check the Nebraska State Historical Society’s website: www.nebraskahistory.org  You will discover that there are many amazing facets to Nebraska history.

See you out there, always learning more about the great state of Nebraska!
