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

Salzmann bags first bear

Give it a try, he told her. (subscriber access)

Beware of aquatic invasive species when waterfowl hunting
The weather has turned colder and the days shorter, and many pleasure boaters are getting ready to store their boats for the season. But that does not mean aquatic invasive species (AIS) are no longer a threat. Waterfowl hunters should be aware that AIS are still in many of our lakes, and they can still be spread from lake to lake, or from one part of the lake to another. (subscriber access)

Wisconsin deer hunters have the opportunity to get their deer tested and help with CWD surveillance
State wildlife officials will continue testing harvested white-tailed deer for chronic wasting disease this year. This testing is part of the ongoing efforts to monitor the status and spread of the disease in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will be testing deer from select areas of the state. Surveillance will focus on adult deer, since older deer are more likely to have the disease.
