James Wallace captured this great buck on trail camera during summer scouting. James Wallace, my nephew-in-law (is there such a ...

    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...

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...

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...
