Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    This past week central Wisconsin was pounded with wet heavy snow, and with that said travel conditions on area lakes has become extremely tough.  Blowing and drifting snow has caused hard packed drifts on the lakes creating havoc for anglers. With our last reading showing 8 to 10 inches of ice in many areas we are advising foot travel or snowm...

    January 9, 2017 Steve Suman Snow continues to fall in the North Woods, though not in huge quantities. Still, accumulations will build if colder temperatures hold – more is on the way mid-week – but the forecast is for mid-20s on Sunday. “The ice is not yet safe enough for vehicles,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “but pe...

    Severe cold kept all but the hardiest (most foolish?) of anglers off the ice this past week.  Nighttime lows in the minus teens to twenties hurt participation for now.  Building ice though will help anglers from here on out.Along with the cold, high pressure hung over the area, compounding what was already tough fishing conditions.Yellow ...

    By John Luthens Native Americans burned ceremonial fires, dancing in forgotten places to dispel the past and welcome in the future. Many of Finnish descent prefer to sit in a wood burning smoke sauna, sweating the demons out and letting them curl into the wind.

    Ice conditions in central Wisconsin are about as perfect as one could want.  Contrary to popular belief the rain last weekend did more good for ice fishing than bad. The rain knocked down the snow and slush on top of the ice allowing it to freeze solidly the following couple of days.  We now have an average of 4 to 8 inches of good solid ...
