With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    Hound killed in Jackson County Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed a hound that was chasing coyotes on county forest lands in Komensky Township.  It appears that 2-3 wolves attacked the hound. Killed was a 5 1/2 year old Plott hound.  Two other dogs were uninjured.   For more information and to view a caution area m...

    Two deer harvested in Portage and Juneau counties during the recent gun-deer hunt have tested positive for the fatal deer disease known as CWD -- chronic wasting disease. Department of Natural Resources scientists say these are the first positive CWD cases in the wild deer populations in both counties. The two CWD-positive deer were harvested on N...

    By John Luthens When the killing hand of winter lays its hand on the northern woods, there are those who fly south to warmer climates; snowbirds, I think they are called.  Call me crazy, but I’ll take the cold.  I’ll take the logging trails and the snow draped pines, and I’ll take the deer paths that lead into the slas...

    With good ice on many northern lakes anglers are getting out and having great success.  While a lot of the attention is being focused on panfish, don't rule out early season walleyes and northern pike as they can provide excellent action at this time of the year. They both put up a hefty battle through the ice and they make for great table far...

    Denny Murawska Closing day of deer hunting season Just as the opening day of any season brings with it a certain tingling of anticipation, closing day brings with it its own bittersweet emotions. A few years back, I experienced a pretty typical season. You would think it would be so much easier to bag a buck with a gun as opposed to archery gear,...

    Denny Murawska Not for the faint of heart The nights are long and every day cold penetrates to the bone. Still, cabin fever in the north is a very real thing. This is why we must get out and seize the moment whenever possible. For some, it is cross country skiing. For the nostalgic, perhaps snowshoeing is a good option. Of course, ice fishing, hi...

    By Dick Ellis Rob Gramoll hadn’t seen a deer during the opening weekend of the Wisconsin deer season. After taking off of work from his Milwaukee job Friday before the opener, he headed north to the Lyndon Station area to hunt family property but didn’t let the no-deer blues interfere with plans to be right back in the saddle after a s...

    Dick Ellis Integrity is often defined by the actions a man will take when no one is around to watch. Bow hunter Adam Fuss of Winneconne was a solitary man with a decision to make on stand in southwest Columbia County November 13. A massive buck traveled on the edge of giving him a shot or as likely disappearing into the brush fore...

    By Darrell Pendergrass My wife and I share a closet, she keeps her stuff on the left side and I keep mine on the right. It’s a fairly simple rule. On occasion Queenie will purchase a new shirt or sweater for me and hang it on my side; that’s how I know I have something new to wear. It’s hanging on my side. OK, one day some month...

    By Darrell Pendergrass The problem with warm weather at any point in the winter is that immediately my thoughts turn to the Brule River and fishing for steelhead trout, which is strictly not a winter sport. Not for me. I guess it’s the smell of spring that comes with the warm temperatures that does it. It’s the feel of April.  It...

    If you are a hunter, a trapper or an outdoor enthusiast of any kind, you need to know hunting and trapping will be allowed in most Wisconsin State Parks during certain periods next year. However, there are some smaller and urban parks that will remain closed to hunting and trapping. The Natural Resources Board met yesterday and made these decisions...

    TRYING TO CATCH WILEY-E-COYOTE: NOV 10-16 THIS IS NOT THE SAME COYOTE OF OLD Of all the animal species that I trap, coyotes give me the most grief. Unlike animals like raccoons and muskrats which are creatures of habit, and can be caught the very next night, coyotes are quite unpredictable. I would put them on par with a trophy whitetail or bla...

    December 17, 2012 The Department of Natural Resources is pleased with U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s decision that Wisconsin Chippewa tribes overstepped their authority when they issued the authorization for hunting deer at night with lights without state approval.

    BY BILL THORNLEY CODY, Wyoming– There is something a bit unnerving about walking out into the mountains near Yellowstone National Park in the pre-dawn darkness and looking down to see a huge – and very fresh – grizzly bear track in the snow on the same trail you are walking. It also makes a guy a little nervous walking through t...
