Charter fishing means good times on the Great Lakes right now; here’s how to increase your odds of success

If you’ve ever thought about booking a Great Lakes charter fishing trip, 2024 might be the year to see what it’s all about.
A mild winter has led to catches heating up earlier than usual this spring, and increased stocking across the Great Lakes states and improving natural recruitment in recent years means there’s plenty of fish available. Even though there are hundreds of U.S. Coast Guard-licensed charter captains around the lake, anglers who call early have the best chance to find an opening on a preferred date.

Burnett County giant bear ties for Wisconsin’s archery state record

At 6-foot-1 and 315 pounds, Bill Foster is a big man. 
An experienced hunter with archery pro shop experience and two Oconto County trophy black bears under his belt, one might think he wouldn’t get rattled while perched 16 feet up a tree overlooking a baited site on private land. But the bear he saw approaching in a Burnett County forest Sept. 8, 2022, had his heart pounding so hard it took him more than a minute to calm his breathing enough to take – and make – a 28-yard shot with his Obsession Turmoil compound.

Wisconsin’s Tom Tiffany, other members of congress take another shot at wolf delisting

U.S. Republican Congressman Tom Tiffany, Wisconsin’s 7th District Representative in Washington, D.C., is taking another shot at giving states the right to manage gray wolves without federal interference.
Tiffany, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-Colorado, and 19 other members of Congress reintroduced the Trust the Science Act earlier this month. The legislation follows the scientific recommendation of wildlife experts that wolves should be removed from the federal Endangered Species List and that their populations should be managed by states.
