Early turkey season began wet, snowy for Illinois youth hunters

Snow, sleet and frigid conditions greeted hunters at the top of the state on both days of the first weekend. Heavy rains and threats of flooding affected hunting in southern parts of the state. The second weekend was a bit better, but missed opportunities in the first weekend is expected to lead to a lower statewide harvest.
Youth hunters typically set the stage for the regular season. Last year’s four-day harvest of 1,264 was a disappointment after the 2021 harvest of 1,321 and the record-setting 2020 harvest of 1,733.

Wisconsin Hall of Fame fishing guide Dave Dorazio remembered after death at age 69

One of Wisconsin’s most legendary places, the Chippewa Flowage near Hayward, lost a little of its luster with the passing of famed fishing guide Dave Dorazio.
Dorazio grew up at what was known as Arrow Resort, which was owned by his parents and overlooked Dorazio Bay. He started guiding when he was 13 and worked the flowage and other area lakes for more than 50 years. He was among the first in the area to promote the idea of catch-and-release fishing for muskies. He was inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in 2019.
