Leashed tracking dog comes home after being lost four days in the New York woods

Just before midnight on Nov. 2, Brenda Dixon heard something on her front porch. She quickly opened the door and there was Dachs, their small dog that had been missing in the woods for a little more than four days. She and her husband both burst into tears.

Advocate reminds New York lakefront owners of safe ways to use de-icer

A Warren County woman is again reminding lake-front property owners to practice safety in the use of ice-eaters and/or bubblers.
Cindy Mead, of Horicon, took on the issue – one that has been debated in the ice fishing community for years – in the winter of 2021-22 after her daughter’s dog drowned in Brant Lake, in northern Warren County. The dog had wandered off and gotten in the open water created by a de-icer and was unable to get back on shore. The dog was later found deceased in the water.

Walleyes, smallmouths the story at Elkhart Lake in Wisconsin’s Sheboygan County

Sheboygan County’s Elkhart Lake ranks as the state’s fourth deepest natural lake and its dissolved oxygen levels at depth are high enough to not only be considered a “two-story” lake that once supported stocked trout, but still supports a natural population of ciscoes – an important forage fish for the lake’s walleyes, muskies, and northern pike.

Photos from the backyard: A magpie drops by

Backyard reader Rita Tepley was trying to hurry out the door a couple weeks ago when she glanced at her feeders – and stopped in her tracks. Like all good photographers, she ran for her camera to record the first time she’d ever seen a black-billed magpie in her yard.

Hunting with Wisconsin’s ‘duck whisperers’ offers glimpse at unique calling style

Most waterfowl hunters buy a commercially-made wood or composite duck or goose call to attract their favorite species into shotgun range.
However, some hunters actually use an old-fashioned mouth-calling technique to bring in birds. My first experience with this was hunting with Cree Indian guides on James Bay, Ontario, in 1988. In Wisconsin, three intensely dedicated waterfowlers successfully use the technique of purring, or rapidly fluttering their tongue, to call in diving ducks consistently.
