Walgren Lake S.R.A. closed for hunting due to illegal baiting of waterfowl

Posted: Updated:

Waterfowl hunters in Sheridan County are going to have to find a new hot spot for a while.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has been forced to temporarily close Walgren Lake State Recreation Area. The closure comes after a landowner intentionally placed grain on private property, creating birds to flock to the area.

Nebraska and federal laws do not allow the hunting of waterfowl on or over a baited area.Waterfowl hunting can resume 10 days after the bait is gone from the area.
