Hunting the Rut     Oh the things we see during the rut. After watching these bucks clash during a North Dakota bird hunt in late October, Ellis snapped this shot of the victor looking for more as the half-rack headed for the hills.

Hunting Wisconsin

Welcome to Wisconsin Hunting. 

  • Is holding vigil over a line of canvasback decoys on Pool 9 of the Mississippi River your idea of heaven? 
  • Do you remember how hard your heart pounded when, after a nine year wait for a kill tag, the lone bear you were hoping for stepped out of the woods like a silent shadow and into the bait with 10 minutes left of legal light? 
  • Do you consider the spring turkey hunt the start of the great winter break-out and a stroke of genius that cut your wait for big game hunting in half?
  • Is your dog’s imitation of a statue over a ruffed grouse on the northern forest floor still a reason for personal pride even though it was God that gave her the gift to point? 
  • Maybe you couldn’t care less about a bird dog but you know your beagle is going to usher that bunny right back to you, and your sense of pride is every bit as deep. 
  • Maybe, waiting for the great equalizer; the whitetail rut, so that you can actually have a crack at that monster buck is cause for memories, anticipation, and quiet talk among friends even in  boat on a hot July day.

Regardless.  This is Wisconsin. You hunt.  We hunt.  Let’s hunt.
