With most of Nebraska being farm land there is very little public land here to hunt. The fish and game will lease crp from farmers but when it comes time for hunting season of any species they always mow it for hay. I personally think that any farmers who get a sebsidy check from the goverment should have to open there farms (within reason) to hunting. I mean those are our tax dollars that they get, around here most of the time they want to lease you the rights for thousands of dollars or not let you hunt at all. A lot of the animosity is from disrespect from previous hunters.
Obviously, you do not own much land! You are correct about disrespect from hunters being the major reason to turn people away. Secondly, the "sebsidy" check as you call it, has to be earned by staying in compliance for whatever was agreed to in the beginning of the contract! Did you know that if a farmer is found to be out of compliance, he must repay ALL the funds he has recieved for the entire contract? And, what is considered "within reason" to you is not what is stated in the rules covering these programs.

I guess you would be willing to open up your front yard to anybody that happens by?

My grandfather always told me "walk a mile in the other guys shoes" and yours will fit better and feel more comfortable!

I have a 110 acres in SE MS that I allow just about anyone to hunt long as they are respectful. My wifes uncle takes care of the property while I work on the road and I know that a lot of peole appreciate the oppoutunity to have a place to be able to hunt. We have also asked several people not to come back and hunt this property.

In PA I hunt mostly all public land, state forest, state game lands, and national forest. Most private land is posted no hunting.
