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.

    December 5, 2016 Steve Suman  The forecast indicates light snow early in the week, with some accumulation, and then a significant drop in temperatures. It would have been nice to get the cold temperatures before this snow to set up ice for better recreational opportunities later in winter, but we do not get a choice. If you have no...

    Steve Suman  Now that the weather and temperatures have become more “seasonal” for this time of year, a consistent pattern is developing much as we experienced this summer. However, rather than the forecast indicating the possibilities of rain nearly every day, the pattern now consistently lists chances for snow!  “The...

    Well it was a tough opener in Wisconsin for the 2016 gun deer season.  With winds gusting over 40 MPH and warm temperatures the deer were not moving well.  Despite the lack of movement hunters were surprisingly successful.  As the week progressed the weather got better and a number of big bucks were taken.  In addition to the nu...

    Well here we are, the start of the 2016 nine-day gun deer season.  In Wisconsin it’s busier than any official holiday as hunters get ready to travel across the state to their favorite hunting destinations.  With that said I hope everyone has a safe and memorable hunt.  Weather conditions across the state look to be in for a dra...

    As October seems to have slid into the second week of November, anglers are finding good reason to get the boats out for “one last shot” at landing a musky or putting some last minute fish in the freezer.  A few 20 degree mornings have helped push surface temps into the upper 40’s all throughout the Lakeland area.  Some ...
