On April 15, we attended a presentation on “Henslow Sparrows, a Species of Concern,” presented by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Biologist Tom Cooper. It was a very informative talk on a small, brown, non-descript bird.
The Stillwater, Minn. man -- an off-duty Washington County Sheriff's Department supervisor -- was struck in the face, neck and shoulder by pellets fired by a White Bear Lake, Minn., man who was hunting in the Town of Somerset early Tuesday, April 30.
Recently the Eastern Gray Wolf was delisted, and the first modern day harvest season was held in both Wisconsin and Minnesota last season. The harvest allotment and timing was very well controlled and everything went off with very few problems.
Initially the concern about CWD was focused on the health of the white tail deer population and the economic implications CWD could have on the deer hunting industry. New science has raised the possibility that we should be looking more closely at the potential effect CWD could have on human health, as well as hope that a new vaccine might stem the spread of CWD.
MADISON –With data entry nearly complete, hunter-supplied numbers indicate that 366,747 deer were harvested in Wisconsin for the 2012 seasons, a 5% increase from 2011, according to Department of Natural Resources officials.

Overall, the statewide gun-deer harvest is up over 19 percent from 2011, and registration increased in all regions, the Wisconsin DNR reported late Monday. Warm weather likely had some hunters registering their deer right away instead of leaving them hang at camp, which likely bumped up the numbers.
Mid-October marks the opening of pheasant season. Wisconsin’s opener was set for Oct. 20 and that was the same day we were leaving for a week of hunting in North Dakota. Wisconsin’s season extends through the end of the year so my dogs and I would still have plenty of time to try to outsmart a few of our local birds.
