State Roundup: Big northern pike remain a mystery in Wisconsin waters

Readers will see that Dave Zeug writes about big northern pike in Wisconsin’s inland lakes in this week’s Wisconsin Outdoor News.

I think big northern pike remain a mystery to most anglers. At least they do to me. Zeug knows of my desire to catch big pike and mentions that in his article. I believe our lakes do grow big pike, although a 44-inch pike could be as rare as a 50-inch muskie. What I don’t know is where they hide.

Coalition of hunting conservation organizations asks Fish and Wildlife Service to delist Great Lakes wolves

A coalition of hunting conservation organizations is petitioning the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to return gray wolves in the Great Lakes to state management, while maintaining federal protections for other populations. 
The Sportsmen’s Alliance, Michigan Bear Hunters Association, Upper Peninsula Bear Houndsmen Association, and Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association filed a pair of petitions in late June calling for the federal government to take action that would ensure gray wolf management is based on science.

Pennsylvania’s doe license sales going smoother after opening rush

Lehigh Valley native Earl Hower, now of Leesburg, Virginia, set his cellphone alarm for 8 a.m. hoping to be among the first in line when Pennsylvania’s nonresident antlerless deer permits went on sale July 10.
“At 8:00:23 (23 seconds) I was number 3,954 in the queue,” said Hower, who, with Wildlife Management Unit 2G clearly sold out, settled for a doe tag in unit 5C. “I bought at 8:48.”
Although it made him late for his morning commute, the experience “wasn’t too painful,” he said, “unlike for the several thousands during the opener.”
