counties.

Landowners receive payments for tall wheat stubble and pheasant friendly managed wheat stubble, and they receive an additional

Each landowner may enroll up to 320 acres for two years.

The goals of the program are to increase and improve pheasant habitat and provide additional public hunting access on private land.

Landowners can contact T.J. Walker or Justin Haahr at 308-535-8025.
