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 ...

    Although shooting a bow has become physically harder since his multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2004, practice and patience have helped Russell Frye maintain his ability to hunt. “Typically I’m in my deer stand every night during archery season,” Frye told us earlier this year. “My wife gets me out to the stand and I hang ou...

This easy-to-do survey has hunters recording their deer and other wildlife observations while deer hunting. This is a great opportunity for hunters to let the WDNR what they are or are not seeing. With hunters continued efforts, the WDNR can better trac...

    By Mike Foss The Rut Begins Trail cam activity is picking up.  While venturing down dirt fire roads out in the Chequamegon National Forest the deer trails crossing the roads are more defined with tracks all over.  Strong evidence that the rut and chasing has begun.

    There is a certain shorter someone in my house who passed trappers certification this summer and now considers himself a bit of a mountain man - never mind that he doesn’t even have the beginnings of a beard. But he is a bona fide trapper now, gosh darn it. Personally, I have not taken trappers certification classes, nor will I ever. I won&r...

    By: Joanne M. Haas/Bureau of Law Enforcement It was either a botched block or burst by a buck bent on battling through. But no matter how much mud the mighty deer kicked up while trying to free its antlers, the net pulled tighter and tighter.

    Mike Yurk Tales to warm you As I write this article, western Wisconsin, where I live, is having the first blizzard of the season.

    The DNR wants to hear from you if you see a feral pig during the upcoming nine-day gun deer season – or if you shoot a feral pig. But, before you shoot it, please make sure it is a feral pig and not someone’s domestic pig running loose. You may be liable for replacement costs if you shoot a domestic pig. Feral pigs have been reported i...

    By Todd Cook On Monday, October 8 at about 3:00 pm I went out to our hunting land to relocate a couple of ladder stands. After moving the first stand I decided to take down a “hang-on” stand that we weren't using. I climbed the tree using the screw-in steps without issue and proceeded to take the stand down. On the way down I was taki...

    By Mike Foss Once again the weather was not cooperating with me this week. I was only able to set up one more deer stand and also checked trail cameras.  Less bear activity and more deer movement mostly at night. The Rut is getting closer, and bigger bucks are on the move. This 3-1/2 year old 8-pointer was captured on trail cam...
