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 ...

This being my second year of hunting I still had no veniso...

    Fishing has continued to stay somewhat slow overall. Fish are being caught, but you're working for each and every one of them. Warmer temperatures are forecasted, and I'm hoping things will turn around and start a steady bite again.
