New York’s St. Lawrence River delivers at Bassmaster Open

The bad news was that only one of Jody White’s spots produced.
The good news was that spot yielded a three-day total of 71 pounds, 15 ounces that won him the Bassmaster Open at St. Lawrence River.
“I wish I had more spots that produced,” he said. “I wish I did something cool. I wish I dodged and weaved. But I had one spot and it worked.”

Wisconsin state Roundup: A reason for deer hunters to mark Aug. 14 on the calendar

Deer hunters looking to put some meat in the freezer this fall will want to circle Monday, Aug. 14, on the calendar. That’s the day the DNR will begin releasing bonus antlerless “tags,” which the agency is now calling harvest authorizations.
I’ll stick with tags for the purpose of relaying information to readers – it just takes less time to type it out. All bonus tags are available over-the-counter, so to speak, since most of those tags will be sold online through the DNR’s Go Wild licensing system, but they also are available at retail license locations.

Christine Thomas: First launch of new pedal kayaks is a memorable experience

“The trailer tires are low on pressure, and we do not have an air compressor. You can run to Fleet Farm and air them up on your way out.”
I do not remember whether it was Kendal Kolpien or Mike Boldt, at Schmidt Boat Lifts and Docks, who said this to my daughter, Shannon Honl, and me as we were picking up the three kayaks and two trailers that we purchased from them in mid-March. The reason that I do not remember who said what is because my mind began to reel with panic as these words were uttered.

Spruce trees dug up from Wisconsin state park offers lesson on what can be legally collected

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Conservation Warden Phil Brown, of Bayfield County, while on patrol noticed something a bit out of the ordinary in the passenger seat of a vehicle.
The odd passenger clearly was not belted in, but then it didn’t have to be. This passenger was one of several small spruce trees that had been pulled from the Brule River State Forest where Brown was patrolling at the time.
