2 ABOUT THE PUBLIC ACCESS ATLAS The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (Game and Parks) has partnered with Pheasants Forever, Inc. (PF), National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), the Nebraska Environmental Trust, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resource Districts (NRDs), landowners, and other private organizations and government agencies to deliver this guide to open-access locations across Nebraska. This Public Access Atlas identifies and consolidates these access resources for the benefit of our hunters, trappers and anglers. By working together, these agencies aim to enhance wildlife habitat and increase hunting, fishing and trapping opportunities in Nebraska. AVAILABLE FORMATS OF THIS ATLAS The Public Access Atlas is available in the following formats: • As a printed atlas – Available free of charge wherever hunting, trapping, and fishing permits are sold. Printable individual map sheets are also available by visiting OutdoorNebraska.org/PublicAccessAtlas • As a digital atlas – Visit OutdoorNebraska.org/ PublicAccessAtlas, then click on "View Interactive Map". Our Interactive map provides users the opportunity to scout out public access sites before going hunting by using printable aerial imagery or topographic base maps. Click or tap on individual sites and retrieve the site details along with the option to get driving directions for easy navigation. Also available for download are KMZ files to be used in applications such as Google Earth. ATLAS DISCLAIMER The content of this atlas is intended to help connect hunters and anglers to public lands and Open Fields and Waters (OFW) properties. The maps included in this publication are for informational purposes and general reference only. The atlas includes information from multiple public and private agencies whose information is not managed or owned by Game and Parks. Every effort is made to provide and maintain this atlas in an accurate, complete and usable format, but Game and Parks does not guarantee that the atlas is correct or complete. This atlas makes no claims to be suitable for navigational use despite roads being depicted on the maps for reference. This atlas is not legally binding and is not intended to be used for legal, engineering, or surveying purposes. Often, signs and fence lines mark the actual boundaries of public access properties. In the absence of fence lines, posted signs indicate the public access boundaries. The user of this atlas is responsible to make sure the land he/she enters is posted with Open Fields and Waters, Wildlife Management Areas, Waterfowl Production Area, or other signs denoting a public hunting or fishing area. It is also the responsibility of all users to know and follow rules and regulations of the lands or waters they are using. Any questions regarding the rules and regulations for the use of specific lands or waters can be answered by contacting the governing public agency for assistance. OFW properties may be removed from or added to the printed atlas following publication. In particular, wheat and milo stubble sites will be added after the printing of the atlas because of printing dates and other circumstances. The digital and interactive map versions of the atlas will be updated throughout the year. For the most-up-to-date information on OFW sites after publication of the printed atlas, visit OutdoorNebraska.org/PublicAccessAtlas Below: Example of interactive map.
