Get permission before morel hunting on private land

May 10, 2018 Jerry Kane

LINCOLN, Neb. – Morel mushroom hunters are out in force this month picking their favorite fungi. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reminds them that they must get landowner permission before entering private land.

The non-commercial harvesting of morel mushrooms is allowed on Nebraska Game and Parks owned and controlled properties, unless otherwise signed. That includes state park areas, where a park entry permit is required, and wildlife management areas (WMA). Morel pickers should be wary of spring turkey hunters on WMAs. Open Fields and Waters program sites are not open to mushroom harvesting, but only to walk-in hunting, fishing and trapping.
