Petersen's Bowhunting - June 2023 Issue

It was my fourth consecutive year hunting the Cornhusker State, and if God has created better whitetail dirt, I've yet to see it. 

I know Kansas, Iowa, and other places are amazing, too — and yes, they produce banger bucks year in and year out — but I love my little slice of Nebraska paradise. And it's only a 40-acre chunk of ground I'll be focusing on in this article. My purpose is not to brad about big bucks or about my past successes on this hunting ground; that's not who I am. My goal has always been to help others succees, and if you heed the small-property whitetail advice that follows, you may be in for your best season yet.
