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 ...

The landscape was blinding white and the jack pines and burr oaks were capped to the gills in snow. It was the first day of Wisconsin’s catch-and-release trout season and it was uncharted territory. If I’d calculated my history correctl...

    These reports are hard to write when given the conditions we have here. Just enough (3-5”) ice to get out on in some areas, while most lakes remain open. Our one chance of real ice making cold (6 degrees on 12-19) was mixed with just enough wind to keep new ice from forming. Places that did have ice made more, but most lakes don’t have ...

    John Luthens When I was young, my parents would pile me and my brother into the car and drive into the northern forests of Barron County to pick pine boughs for making Christmas wreaths. It was a seasonal ritual, running wild and free in the woods. The forest that we haunted stretched along a river bottom. There were stands of balsam to become los...

    This past week has seen some drastic changes.  We started the week out with just enough ice to allow for some foot travel and then bam it was gone.
