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 ...

    In the parking lot of the local East Troy Piggly Wiggly, my mind was elsewhere, as I was attempting not to squash certain grocery items as I tossed them into the back seat of my Ford 150. As I was completing this mindless task, a woman yells to me: “That’s really a wonderful thing you do. Thank you for your service.”  I heard...

    Jerry Seinfeld always stated that his TV show (1989-1998) was: “The show about nothing!” …….without his success and really without much success at all, or possibly no success, I kind of see myself as the Jerry Seinfeld of outdoor writers.  Basically, regarding my past experiences revolving around hunting, I write abou...

    The year was 1958 and for the second year in a row, the Milwaukee Braves were in the World Series. The year before, the Braves were world champions, and at age six, I just started following our baseball team. That October of 1958, my parents took me out of school for a week in Canada. It kind of was a family vacation as we went as a family and a d...

    I have always had a respect for and a fear of fire.  I have stared into a blazing fire and I have caught myself nearing a hypnotic state.  At our onetime property up in Phelps, I did enjoy a good marshmallow roasting, stone rimmed campfire and creating s’mores on the beach. Also, my wife and I really do savor a glowing fire in our f...

    I believe the year to be 1988, I was reading about the relatively new (1982) organization of Pheasants Forever (PF) and I became interested in starting a Wisconsin chapter. Prior to that time, I understand there was only one other chapter in our state. For me, the entire process was extremely simple. I contacted PF and I talked to a gentleman by th...

    If you are near my age of 65, you should remember one of the hit TV shows from 1957-1963. The TV show was, “Have Gun-Will Travel.”  As I was looking back at that western, I started thinking that the name of that show could also pertain to all the hunters I hunt with and their guns.  I see each gun being an extension of that ...

    In my grade school library, I can remember more than one teacher scolding me for always reading the current issues of Outdoor Life and Field and Stream rather than a book. I read about trips to the pheasant fields of South Dakota, the flooded timbers of Arkansas, and the open sea and the ducks on the east coast. Those trips that I read and day dr...

    My wife Chris overheard a phone conversation my son Nate and I were having, as we made plans for an upcoming duck hunt. I was using phrases like……need to glass, deke placement, and ducks cupping.   These are all normal duck hunting terms.   When I got off the phone, she asked: “I know you were talking about h...

    Growing up in my neighborhood, all of us played sports. All summer long, my best friend John, would come over every morning and wake me up.  After watching a rerun episode of “The Andy Griffith Show,” we would head out to my gravel driveway and beat each other up in a game of one-on-one basketball. It got particularly ugly when it ...

    When I was a child, I wished I was born in the days of Davy Crockett. I believed life would have been grand, if I could have shared adventures with the 1950’s, Walt Disney’s TV character. Like almost every kid in America, I wanted so badly to wear one of those coonskin caps. My mother wouldn’t allow it, because I would, “Cat...

    As a young hunter, I had a love affair with squirrels.  I did hunt pheasants and some waterfowl, but primarily, I was a squirrel hunter.  I became so consumed with this type of hunting because there were abundant squirrels in a nearby woodland. There I could pursue them with my bow or pellet gun without the supervision of a parent.  ...

    As a young boy, Horicon Marsh was this magical place far, far away. It was so far, that my dad had to sleep over night the entire weekend.   I had never seen it, and I only heard my dad relay his adventures of his hunts. When he drove into the driveway on Sunday night, I would run out to the car to see what waterfowl he had shot. That was...
