When the nights turn cold and the days are bright and brisk, Phelps County and south central Nebraska becomes a paradise for upland game hunters, with a dozen species of birds and small mammals available to hunt. While ring-necked pheasant remains by far the most popular species to hunt, grouse, quail, woodcock, dove and partridge offer bird hunters a variety found in few other states.
November also means Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving means family. In Phelps County, many families welcome back their members who have flown to other places. When they come back, we can help with the entertaining, with great family opportunities at the YMCA of the Prairie, the Sun Theater, Gutterz Bowling Center and the Nebraska Prairie Museum. Anytime is a good time to visit Phelps County. Check out what’s going on this month.
