Hunters welcome at DU’s Verona Complex in Nebraska

All of DU’s Nebraska properties are open for hunting

Ducks Unlimited's Verona Complex in Nebraska is open for hunting. The property is between Clay Center and Sutton (directions) and is an excellent example of healthy Rainwater Basin waterfowl habitat.

The more than 1,000-acre complex (map) includes the 120-acre Wolf North Tract where only youth are allowed to hunt. Adults are encouraged to bring the young hunters to the Wolf North Tract, but cannot carry a gun themselves.

The youth tract features a duck hunting blind (available on a first-come, first-served basis) and an observation tower in the parking area for less strenuous wildlife viewing. Also located on this tract is the "Fallen Heroes Memorial." This monument commemorates those service men and women from Nebraska who have fallen in post 9-11 conflicts.

The rest of the complex and the adjacent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service waterfowl production area are open to hunting for everyone.  Other DU properties are also open to hunting, and you can find them in the Nebraska Game and Parks Public Access Atlas.
