McCook Area Hunting
Known by hunting enthusiasts across the country, Southwest
Nebraska flourishes with wildlife and serves as an excellent hunting area. Four
different Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) exist within the McCook area and are
maintained throughout the year by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Collectively, over 11,000 acres of public hunting ground is available at these
State Wildlife Management Areas with both pasture land and timber-covered areas.
You'll find plenty of game on land covered with pheasant, quail, duck, Canada
geese, turkey, rabbit, deer and more.
Enders Reservoir WMA & SRA: You'll find 2,892 well-scheduled acres of
pasture land southeast of Imperial and west of Wauneta on Hwy 6 & 61 near a
1,707 acre lake. The area serves as an excellent location for various waterfowl,
pheasant and deer. Over another 1,000 acres of pasture land is available for
hunting within the State Recreation Area.
Medicine Creek WMA: Located 7 miles north of Cambridge, Medicine Creek
Wildlife Management Area features almost 6,000 acres of pasture land near a

of turkey, pheasant, quail and both whitetail and mule deer that are common
within the Medicine Creek area.
