In the Wild with Greg Wagner


MUST-TRY, HEALTHY, TASTY GROUND VENISON BURGER RECIPE by Greg Wagner

This is a must-try, healthy, tasty recipe for those of you who have or will have ground venison in the frig or freezer this fall or winter. It’s actually a healthy twist on an older recipe in my file. Even non-hunters and non-wild game meat eaters visiting the Wagner abode have thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! It serves eight people. Bon appetite! See you out there, grill-side! By the way, if you would like to receive or donate some venison, don’t forget about our Nebraska Deer Exchange Program here: http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/hunting/programs/deerexchange/

PREPARING TO DO(E) MY PART, HOW ABOUT YOU? by Greg Wagner

I just purchased my resident $11.00 October Antlerless Deer Hunting Season Permit to harvest two antlerless whitetail deer with any legal weapon in the open management unit from Oct. 2-11. What a bargain!

Are you a deer hunter? Look at the map below, do you have any land within the management unit boundaries where you deer hunt?

Why not take advantage of this early season opportunity to do(e) your part for the landowner, the motorist, the wildlife manager and more so, for the overall health of the whitetail herds in these respective areas.

Remember, you can actually buy as many of these October Antlerless Deer Hunting Season Permits as you want!  In case you’re wondering, the nonresident price for the October permit is $55 (still a bargain). Here’s where you go to purchase your permit (and current habitat stamp if you don’t have one already):   https://ngpc-permits.ne.gov/NGPC-PS/faces/public/welcome

Don’t forget your blaze orange cap and vest in the field. See you out there, do(e)ing your part!
