Here in the state of Nebraska, the only game species left to hunt with a handgun is rabbit.

So, what does everyone do besides practice to pass the down time till handgun hunting seasons start in fall? Nebraska doesn?t allow handgun for spring or fall turkey.

Shooting paper and steel can only go do far. I?m bored already.

Nebraska has some prairie dogs...though you probably won't see them for a couple more months. Good practice for field shooting.

Blame James and go to Tioga, headed there in hot July to try it out if plans go as scheduled.
