    PUPS…….I write a column for the On Wisconsin Outdoors Newspaper and have written numerous articles for the website regarding my hunting memories.  I was a pheasant hunting guide for many years until a recent health condition stopped that activity. My health also stopped my continuation of my dog breeding and more importantly cont...

    As a young hunter, I was really excited to host my own hunting party and after several requests, I finally received permission to do so from my parents. Even though I lived in a rural area of Franklin in the mid-1960s, there were not a lot of boys in my seventh grade classes that were hunters. There were just a handful of us that discussed our squ...

Snow was falling Thursday in the north, with forecasts for some areas to possible get up to 8 or 9 inches. Unfortunately the precipitation in the south was rain and freezing rain. What little snow the south we had ...

    My last memory ended with me stating that I remember the hunting shots I missed more thoroughly than I do the ones that I made. I truly believe it all goes back to an experience I had in high school. It wasn’t hunting, it was a different scenario as Franklin and Greendale High Schools were playing for the basketball championship in the old P...

    For me it’s a sad time of year. Saturday, December 2nd, my son Nate and I were out in our duck blind for the last waterfowl hunt of the year. The duck hunting season closed the following Sunday. I will miss the shared time with my son as we have a weekly hunt date throughout the entire two month season. He is a third year veterinarian student...

    This is my 50th memory written for the On Wisconsin Outdoors website. Some might call this a milestone, others might say, “Who cares!” I’m an old hunter and not very current with all of today’s on line terms. With that perspective, I’m not sure if my memories are blogs, columns, articles or just plain old memories...

From our home, at 6:03am, we heard a volley of six shots over a local water hole, a full twenty minutes pri...
