Public Land Deer Hunting
By: Jordan Marsh
It’s no secret that Wisconsin is a top tier and destination deer hunting state. Hunters from across the country venture to Wisconsin every fall to chase the elusive whitetails that fill the landscape. The Badger State has had plenty of Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young deer taken being that it’s one of the highest harvesting states of those records every season. The nine-day gun deer season is about as big of a tradition as the holidays. As the woods turn into blaze orange, businesses literally shut down, and the sight of seeing a hunter’s “trophy” in the back of the truck is just the daily norm. We are fortunate to live in a state with a good population of whitetails, but we are even more fortunate to have the opportunity to be able to access hundreds of thousands of acres of public land.

Wolves Run Amok
By: Earl S.
For the third time in less than a year, the U.S. Congress will attempt to pass legislation that will allow the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wyoming to control their wolf populations without interference from the courts. Previous legislation was strongly supported by Wisconsin Senators Baldwin and Johnson and they will likely support the new proposal. This latest legislation was introduced into the U.S. House by Representatives Sean Duffy (R-WI), Collin Peterson (D-MN), and Liz Cheney (R-WY). Cheney is the daughter of former Vice-President Dick Cheney. Wisconsin has been unable to hold wolf seasons for the past two years due to a federal court decision in 2014 that returned wolves to protected status. Continue Reading
Me and Rog
A Snowy Adventure
By: Jim Patterson
A particular winter came along, the bow season was still open, and neither me nor Rog had put a deer in the freezer.
It was December 31, 1971 and a New Year was in the offing. There had been a lot of snow this winter, and I mean a lot of snow, and walking in the woods and fields was almost impossible. But, I had a spot where it wouldn’t be too hard to get back into. Continue Reading

It’s Friday, November 27, 2015 of the Wisconsin gun deer season. Not many hunters out and even fewer gunshots heard. I’ve hunted with gun and bow for 46 years now. I clearly remember that deer season meant “nine” days, not just opening weekend and maybe a day or two during the week, but nine days. It’s tradition! Hunters sure don’t hunt like they did years ago. I give my dad credit for all his guidance in teaching me how to hunt at a young age. I believe in never giving up. You have to put in the time and effort to be successful; learning hunting skills that only come with experience. The thrill of the hunt has never left me. Continue Reading
Huntin’ for Peace
By: Tony Blando
It’s usually the middle of August when I first feel it. It seems that every year it happens right around that time and generally sets up the same. This year it happened early on August 20th at the beginning of my morning walk with my better half. Continue Reading
