Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

An Iron Tale

Brother to brother, or friend to friend, a lot of us communicate with others in other hunting camps during the archery or gun seasons  to get the stories of kills and misses. This one came into our camp in Vilas County from brother, Steve Ellis, hunting in Iron County.

“I was on my lone wolf 20 minutes before shooting hours in an area where I was seeing a lot of tracks in the fresh snow. I hunted there the night before without seeing anything.

The sun came up, and so did the wind, hitting about 30 knots with whiteout snow conditions.

I made it to about 8:15 and said "no way", so I got down and put the climber in the truck and decided to try my ladder stand and a new location.

deerBy the time I got there (8:40) the sun was trying to come out, and I was pretty sheltered from the wind so I decided to give it 'till 10am even though there wasn't much going on in the way of tracks.

At 9:10, a doe came by fast and she looked really upset. She was breathing hard and looked like she was real tired.

Something was chasing her so I'm thinking buck or wolf.

About four minutes later a spike came by on her trail and I was thinking "no way"...but he looked as bad as she did. Real tired.

So...something is chasing them. I thought if it's a buck I'm shooting it, and if it's a wolf I can at least fantasize about shooting it.

About another four minutes and another deer shows up hot on their trail so I bring up the scope for the third time and I saw it was a decent buck...

I waited for a good enough shot and got him.

That was fun.
