Cold and deep snow make for a tough Wisconsin rabbit hunt

On a frigid Sunday, while the Green Bay Packers licked their wounds as they jetted home from rainy California, a dozen hunters gathered in Fond du Lac County, Wis., for an adventure that turned out about just as successful as the Packers’ second playoff game.

Glenn Sapir: The use of a shooting stick pays off this past deer season

Illinois joins Midwest Walleye Challenge where anglers can win prizes, help biologists better understand fisheries

Each year, state natural resources and fish and wildlife agencies invest significant resources to support walleye fisheries. Locally, Iowa’s Fairport Fish Hatchery staff spend several weeks collecting broodstock (adult walleyes) on the Mississippi River for hatchery production.
