Has anyone hunted Merriams in northwest Nebraska? I have been scouring the internet the last few days in regards to doing a Merriam hunt in Scotts Bluff or Banner County as it is closets.I am not opposed to going to the extreme northwest corner of the state. There seems to be a good amount of public ground however I have seen quite a bit of conflicting information as far as bird population and number of hunters on WMA. I am not opposed to paying a reasonable access fee however a full guided hunt does not interest me. Seems there is a number of outfitters that offer DIY semi guided hunts around Crawford, NE. Where ever I end up I want to make sure there is a good population of true Merriam (Snow white mountain birds) and not hybrids. Any tips or knowledge you have that you are willing to share with me would be greatly appreciated! Anyone up for a road trip? Seriously!!!
