Gear to prioritize when building a whitetail Sitka system for each part of the season

Does a hunter need high-quality clothing to kill deer? It’s not a necessity for everyone, but it can certainly make hunting a more enjoyable experience, as well as keep a person in the woods longer and help one be physically and mentally ready.

Egg of endangered piping plover found at Montrose Beach in Chicago

A piping plover egg has been spotted at Montrose Beach and could hatch within the next month, the Chicago Park District and its nature conservation partners announced May 31.
The egg is a culmination of years-long efforts by nature groups to boost the Great Lakes piping plover population, which has been listed as federally endangered since 1986. The egg is the product of a recent pair bond between native-born Imani, who hatched at Montrose Beach in 2021, and Searocket, one of the 5-week-old captive-reared piping plover chicks released at the beach last year.
