Michigan’s wolf population continues to anger hunters and farmers across the Upper Peninsula as conservation groups urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to return management to states.

Sometimes, we attend events that offer a wide range of topics that make us pause and reflect. One of those for me was at last August’s Okoboji Blue Water Festival (OBWF), where Jon Bowermaster provided the keynote speech.
