Kevin Wallenfang and his tournament winning, 46-inch musky just prior to release Fishing has been as hot as the weather for our circle of family and friends, and anglers participating in the 16th Annual Bob Ellis Row Trolling Classic. The Classic was started in 2003 by fishing guide Patricia Strutz to memorialize Bob Ellis, a legendary northern Wisconsin row troller inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 2008 for his im...

    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...

    Near a wetland in the Kramer/Bottineau area of North Dakota, is where my most entertaining (for me) pheasant hunting anecdote took place.  We were there for a five day duck hunt, but we did a little pheasant hunting on the side. This brief storyline, when I get to it, I have repeated it numerous times.  It brings a smile to my face each a...

    After too long of a drive, my son Nate and I found our destination and entered our Arkansas waterfowl hunting lodge. In front of the dimly lit fireplace, we encountered two, colorful, guitar playing old guys (my age), that very well could have been folk singers from the 1963-64 Hootenanny TV show.  One player stopped his picking, and almost im...

    November 7, 2016 Steve Suman   If you are taking great pride in consistently running an hour ahead of schedule... perhaps you forgot to turn back your clock Saturday night/Sunday morning! Mild weather continues in the North Woods this week, mirroring last year’s fall pattern. Should that continue, expect to see an abrupt change next ...

    Deep in thought, I was attempting to tally the number of times I have guided for pheasant hunters.  After those extensive calculations, (not really) I estimated the number of my guided hunts to be in the 400’s.  I have come up with a few memories that stand out, because …….well, you be the judge. Since 2009, I have be...

    On Saturday, October 22, 2016, driving to and from a Green Bay open water duck hunt, Jesse Jablonski and I had plenty of time to discuss hunting and other aspects of our lives. Our third hunter, Brian Jablonski met us at the boat launch. On our way home, our thoughts were on our successful journey out on the bay, and shooting a three man limit of B...

    During his five year military career, my special force’s army ranger son Nate totaled five war time deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sporadically, during that time, he would call me from overseas and because of the time zone changes, those calls would usually arrive around 2:00am. I was always awakened from a deep sleep hearing my son&rsq...

    Sunday, September 25th, 2016 was our first goose hunt of the season and thanks to Jesse Jablonski’s scouting, the Horicon geese loved our location. In 90 minutes, our traditional father/son hunting party of six shot our 12 bird limit of Canada Geese.  After the hunt at Susie’s restaurant in Lomira, we were laughing as Jesse, and hi...

    By John Luthens Morning mist rose from the valley and swirled around my tent. I’d slept the honest sleep of the outdoors. If there were creatures in the night, they’d passed unaware. I chewed granola bars for breakfast, washing them down with more water than I cared to drink, filling my bottle from the bubbling stream below the trail b...

    Back in 1986, when my son Ty was two, alright almost three, he was capable of a skill that most at that age do not possess. He could identify eight different species of ducks. I had just begun my first attempts at carving and painting wood ducks. These starter ducks were just fair, but were good enough to teach Ty a duck identification game. &...
