Fish like a girl
The first gun-deer season with the new mentored hunting rules in place has come and gone. No three-year-olds killed people with a 30-06. No one reported a kid wandering in the woods alone, not knowing how to get back to the truck or hunting shack. The world did not come to an end. What did happen? (subscriber access)

Without a doubt, the traditional November gun deer season is the most cherished hunting season Wisconsin hunters look forward to, a feeling I've shared since the 1940s. At age six, my introduction to this annual event began in 1943 when my dad decided I was old enough to spend time in the Anderson/Jorgensen Deer Camp, an institution that he founded in Vilas County in 1938.

What's new?
Each new deer season lately comes with its own set of changes, it seems, and this year is no different. Gone away are back tags, those leaving the landscape last year. Also gone away are in-person registration stations. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
Earlier this month, the joint finance committee (JFC) effectively got the ball rolling on doing away with carcass tags for turkey, goose and deer. This measure was put through the committee by Representative Adam Jarchow (R-Balsam Lake) to be passed as part of the budget under the auspices it is somehow fiscal in nature. This, after legislators agreed to remove matters of policy from the budget, came as a surprise to many sporting groups. (subscriber access)
