Welcome to On Wisconsin Outdoors
On March 23, 2017, 28 elk from Kentucky arrived at their new home in Sawyer county, Wisconsin. This is the third year of a five-year elk reintroduction project being conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and many other local partners.

On Wisconsin Outdoors (OWO) was founded in August of 2007, by owner and publisher Dick Ellis, to inform and entertain those who love the great outdoors. As a professional journalist, who also happens to hunt and fish, Ellis wrote a syndicated outdoor column for twenty years that appeared in newspapers across Wisconsin. During that period, by actually reporting from the field, he forged great relationships with many of the state’s most talented hunting and fishing guides and professional outdoor journalists.
These writers and guides, now affectionately known as the “Ellis Experts”, appear in every issue of OWO to bring timely information about what’s “hot”, where, and how to improve your chances for success in the field.
Six issues of OWO are published annually. Each issue highlights two full months of the very best that Wisconsin has to offer. Since its inaugural issue six years ago, OWO has reached well over 5 million readers. Now supplemented by this website launched in 2012 that number continues to grow.
