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 ...

    As a Franklin Physical Education teacher for 32 years, I taught a lot of archery classes. Teaching 175 students a day, I was constantly dealing with a few students who had the potential to be unsafe. One day around 1990, during the same time as an archery class, the high school marching band was practicing on the football field. Our archery range w...

    I have mentioned that I have been on hunting trips ranging from great to poor. The reader should be able to establish where this hunt fits into that great/poor spectrum. My son Nate and I wanted to extend our 2013 waterfowl hunting season so we researched spring, Snow Geese, guided hunts near the Yankton, South Dakota area. I had heard from several...

    In 1980, Iowa was king of the pheasant hunting world harvesting nearly 1.4 million pheasants.   After researching 1980, I was wondering when pheasants were at their peak.  I found that 1945 South Dakota had the highest harvest year on record with 7.5 million pheasants in the bag. This happened, after the conclusion of World War II wi...

    This column will be a little different than most as it is my satire on: “I haven’t shot ducks that well!”   There, I’ve said it.  I admit it: “And geese are bigger and probably slower than ducks and I’ve missed more than my share of those too.” Pheasant, now there’s a bird, I can shoot at ...

    Last week, I was driving east at a good pace on Walworth County’s Highway J, when suddenly a large hen turkey came out of nowhere and landed in front of my Ford 150.  I had oncoming traffic on my left and I didn’t want to risk driving right into the ditch with many mature trees growing nearby, so hitting the turkey was my only alte...

    In the field, there were  two times that by definition, I might not have been lost, but I sure didn’t know where I was. Please remember these occurred during the days before my flip phone could aid me with directions.

    Previously, I have written about some fond memories that I have regarding my father introducing me to hunting. He always tried to make my hunting experiences into positive adventures as I recall him constantly positioning me for the best shot. He was proud but silent, when I did harvest a squirrel or a pheasant. However, our relationship was not a...

    For most of my life, I have been fortunate that I have lived with dogs. Some of my earliest memories consist of me playing with Bassett Hound puppies in our kennel.  I remember cuddling with our old Bassett, Daisy Lazy Mae, and then attempting to pull her in my wagon.  When she was not in the kennel, I was instructed to always keep an eye...

    During the summer of 2016, I reunited with seven of my college fraternity brothers that I haven’t seen or talked to since 1973. None of them were hunters and I tried to explain to them my love of the outdoors, our five Labradors and specifically game bird hunting.  It was difficult for these golfing suburban Chicago men to relate to my p...

    Some hunting trips are planned in great depth and some are off the cuff. Our worst hunting trip of our lives was a deeply researched and well planned 2014, spring, South Dakota, Snow Goose hunt. So one never knows how a hunt will turn out…it is called hunting! The year was 1965, when my dad enjoyed hanging around with his cronies at the Hal...

    During the 1950’s and 1960’s in Franklin, Wisconsin, growing up next to a river, made this young boy’s life just a whole lot better. Today, by definition, technically, it should be labeled a stream. The other boys in the neighborhood and I never called it a river or a stream. To us, it was the creek.  Now, that word might loo...

    By Stacie Dowd It’s been another fun filled successful deer hunt this year. I got a beautiful 8-pointer on Saturday November 12th with my bow.  My husband Jerry and I spent that whole day out in the woods.  It was about 15 minutes before close when he came out of some thick brush and gave me a 10 yard shot.  He is t...

    I’m not looking for sympathy, but I wish to share my battles with Chronic  Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML). Hopefully, I will present a unique perspective as an outdoorsman and a cancer battler. I was diagnosed in early 2013 with this rare form of Leukemia and with it came an average life expectancy of 34 months. For over three years, to...

    I have been an outdoorsman for nearly all 65 years of my life, but I also was an athlete in high school (1969) and college (1973). Then my career started as a physical education teacher and coach and that continued until my retirement in 2006. So I believe I am safe to say I have/had that jock mentality. Now that is not necessarily a good trait. Be...
