Blacktail jack numbers have plummeted in Kearney. I hawked there last season and this season both a couple times. Many of the fields that had jacks in previous years we saw no jacks or sign. In addition the developer that owns some of the land that was hawked at previous meets decided he doesn't want people on his land and put up "posted no trespassing" signs. Workers on site will call law enforcement. I heard of one falconer that was prosecuted. Large fine and lost Nebraska hunting for several years.
