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 ...

    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 ...
