In Search of the Good Water, Part 2: Idaho’s quiet streams near Hemingway’s Ketchum, Idaho, resting place

The island was home to a small band of elk during the fall week I was there as a guest writer, and in the evening, you could hear elk bugle as they ventured up the hill from the island.

Joe Fellegy: Burbot regs in Minnesota, a Mille Lacs mess, and a memory

So the burbot (eelpout) is now a Minnesota game fish? Well, many license-buying anglers got the latest print edition of the DNR’s fishing regulations booklet, and what a surprise many experienced!
Many asked questions like this one: If eelpout are now a Minnesota game fish, why are there no limits and no seasons?

Doe tags guaranteed to most Pennsylvania hunters

When Pennsylvania’s 2024-25 antlerless deer licenses go on sale alongside general hunting licenses in late June, far fewer people will be waiting in line.
And for most hunters, there won’t be a need.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission has modified the antlerless deer license sales schedule, and additionally is guaranteeing most resident hunters will get an antlerless license in the wildlife management unit of their choice, as long as they do so before sales to nonresidents begin.

Oak Duke: Gobbler hunting can be like fishing

Sometimes it is a long time between gobbles for a turkey hunter, kind of like a long time between bites for a fisherman. Our confidence wanes, especially poignant when on an out-of-state hunt.

The Michigan Natural Resources Commission at its meeting earlier this month formally approved elk season lengths and quotas for the next two years that largely are unchanged from recent seasons.

Dave Zeug: A delayed opener on Wisconsin’s Brule River was good for this winter-weary angler

For a Brule River trout fisherman in Wisconsin, the traditional first day of spring has been on the last Saturday in March for decades.
It doesn’t matter if there is still 3 feet of snow on the storied river’s banks or 3 feet of melted snow putting the river into flood stage, steelhead addicts will be there on opening day. This includes yours truly, at least it did until this year’s opener fell over a family-oriented Easter weekend. And that’s OK. At this stage of the game, I have had plenty of Brule River openers under my belt.
