Upland game hunting around Broken Bow and the Custer County area is excellent. There are about 3,500 acres of public area at Pressey Park. Waterfowl hunting is good along the North Loup River with Northern Ducks and Geese taken regularly. Deer success ratios are consistently high, with good mule deer and white tail deer hunting throughout the area. Dove numbers offer excellent early shooting with the season opening in early September.
Nebraska One Box Pheasant Hunt www.nebraskaonebox.com Since its beginning in 1961, the Nebraska One Box Pheasant Hunt has grown to be an annual event of worldwide interest. Founded by the late Tom Varney, Jr., the hunt has grown from a competition among friends to one that has included the likes of Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf and Astronaut Neal Armstrong. Highlights of the early November hunt include a trap shoot, Smorgasbord, Victory Banquet, Past Shooter Appreciation Party, and, of course, the pheasant hunt.
The Nebraska One Box Habitat Association, Inc. helps to benefit the area through such things as a scholarship program, habitat program, pheasant raising and release, and community improvement and enrichment. The association also financially supports the creation and maintenance of habitat in the area.
