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 ...

    CATCHING A FEW BEAVERS: NOV 3rd - 9thBEAVER FUR AND WISCONSIN'S HERITAGE This week found me taking care of some beaver trapping opportunities.

    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.

    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...
