    By Darrell Pendergrass I spent a lot of time in my tree stand this past deer season – a lot of time. I’m sure people get sentenced to less jail time for minor crimes than I spent in the tree stand this year. Honestly. I spent more time up in the tree during the hunt than I did in some of the classes I took in college; which isn’...

    With the warm temperatures we had this past week we are advising anglers to stay off area ice and wait for cooler temperatures and more solid ice.  Right now in Central Wisconsin we have from 1 1/2 inches to 2 1/2 inches of ice and that will more than likely diminish before it gets better if the weather continues to stay the way it is.  W...
