Lillian Treder has great first hunting season
Lillian Treder is no stranger to hunting, although this was her first attempt at harvesting her own animals. Treder is 10-years old and has been going out into the woods with her dad, Nic, for years now. She said she started sitting in a deer stand with him about five years ago and her mom, Kristi, said she has been out scouting for turkey for even longer. (subscriber access)

Fish like a GIRL
There is nothing that bothers me more than adults who belittle and berate youth hunters and anglers. I have seen it again this deer season, and I think it is ridiculous. (subscriber access)

Johnson bags nice buck, lulls a bear cub to sleep
Joshua Johnson is a 17-year-old avid outdoorsman from Rhinelander. He has been hunting for six years and has been able to harvest eight deer in that time. But that is not the extent of his love of the outdoors. He hunts during almost any open season, he is a trapper and also enjoys fishing. If it has something to do with the outdoors, it is likely on his long list of interests. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
For me, and for many sportsmen, deer hunting season is steeped in tradition. I think it is really the beginning of a season of traditions. It starts with the hunt, then moves to Thanksgiving, with Christmas and New Year's Eve right around the corner. It is an entire season, at least to me. (subscriber access)

New rules, new look for the 2016 deer hunt
Hunters will look a bit different in the woods this year. Gone are the backtags that adorn many a garage or cabin wall. The back tag requirement has gone away, and carcass tags have been replaced by plain paper tags. (subscriber access)

CWD testing kiosks set up across the Northwoods
Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties are under an indefinite ban on baiting and feeding deer due to two CWD positive tests just last year in Oneida County. The DNR is asking hunters to have any deer harvested in these three counties to have their deer tested for CWD. (subscriber access)

Fish like a GIRL
It is almost time for the 2016 gun-deer hunt. It is a time steeped in history and one that most Wisconsin hunters anticipate for sometimes as long as months. It seems so much has changed in the way of hunting over the years. (subscriber access)

traveling trails less traveled
Sometimes, when I'm pondering what to feature in an upcoming column, I receive an inspiration from an unexpected source. Such was the case recently while I was pouring through the pages of a recent copy of my favorite outdoor magazine, the NRA's "American Hunter." (subscriber access)

Tori Brigham bags first bear
Ten-year-old Tori Brigham comes from a family of hunters. It is no surprise, then, that she decided she wanted to learn to hunt, too. That is just what she did, through the Learn to Hunt Bear program, put on by the DNR. (subscriber access)

traveling trails less traveled
"The outdoors holds many things of keen delight. A deer flashing across a burm, a squirrel corkscrewing up a tree trunk, a sharptail throbbing up from the stubble - all these have their place in the scheme of things. But the magic visitation of ducks from the sky to a set of bobbing blocks holds more of beauty and heart-pounding thrill than I have ever experienced afield with rod or gun. Not even the sure, hard pluck of a hard-to-fool brown trout, or the lurching smash of a river smallmouth has stirred me as has the circling caution of ducks coming to decoys." - Gordon MacQuarrie

Big boat, little boat

I know the media often portrays outdoors pursuits as a redneck affair. But that's not really true. (Subscriber access)

A kid again

I’ve been thinking about when I was a kid a lot lately. Maybe some of the simple joys lost, or no longer a part of life, are the reason.

Perched on the brink of spring

The lengthening days and a higher, stronger sun make it easier to believe spring is actually going to occur, despite the relatively cold temps and formidable snow cover.
