Rooster pheasants, big grins go together

By Kurt Krueger

THE?WIND was gusting to 30 miles per hour with wind chills near the zero mark as we readied the cold-weather clothing, guns and a dog on a brisk November afternoon, too late to cancel or question our sanity.

Nothing could stop us now from chasing pheasants at Heritage Hunt Club in Laona. The drive was over. The birds were already in the field. We were all in.

And it was no surprise that the scribbler, a dog named Gracie and hunting partners Bill Weber and son Noah of Eagle River had the farm to ourselves.

Who hunts in these conditions?
