Well-known albino buck from Spooner, Wis., area found dead after nearly 15-year history

It was a dark, rainy morning when Washburn County Highway Commissioner Brian Danielsen called a homeowner at the intersection of county roads A and H in the Burnett County town of Scott.
“It’s the end of an era,” he said. “The King is dead. We found him this morning.”
For the past 14 or 15 years, the “King” has been a majestic albino white-tailed buck living in the area.

Wisconsin Whitetails Unlimited chapter loses longtime friend with Gary Magnus passing

Northwest Wisconsin’s hunting community, and especially Whitetails Unlimited, lost a friend and supporter with the passing of Gary Magnus, 72, of Spooner.
Magnus lived and breathed hunting of all types. He got a Whitetails Unlimited chapter going, and going strong, in Washburn County more than 30 years ago when he helped form the Northwest Wisconsin WTU Chapter. Magnus’s signature, old, faded yellow WTU hat was even on display at his funeral visitation.

Winged Freedom Raptor Hospital in Wisconsin releases ‘patients’

Veterinarian Kim Ammann and the volunteers at Winged Freedom Raptor Hospital in Spooner have been busy in recent weeks. A barred owl with a broken wing and a pair of bald eagles were recently ready to release.
Healing a bird like the young barred owl takes time. Sometimes it takes more time than anticipated. Ammann walked the owl into a clearing for the release. The bird clicked his beak, one of his defense methods, and seemed ready to soar high and disappear into the tall pines in the area.
