Lincoln, NE -(AmmoLand.com)- Target shooting is prohibited, effective immediately, on portions of Hamburg Bend Wildlife Management Area (WMA) south of Nebraska City in Otoe County because of safety issues.
Target shooting is prohibited within 100 yards of the north parking lot located at the east end of County Road L and also within 100 yards of the termination of County Road N at the flood control levee.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reminds people using Hamburg Bend WMA that the flood control levee is not open to public use, including target shooting.
