Tribes not entitled to nighttime deer hunting

By Kurt Krueger

IT?ALWAYS amazes me that Wisconsin’s Chippewa tribes want to take advantage of special hunting privileges on the argument that somebody else is allowed to do it, even if it is an apples to oranges comparison.

Most noteworthy were those early court cases in which able-bodied tribal hunters were trying to get the same road-hunting privileges as non-Indian hunters who had a disability permit.

The tribes argued that giving anyone a right to shoot from a vehicle or from a roadway means that tribal members should also have a right to do it — disability or not.

Today, the six Ojibwe tribes are seeking

THE TWO 12-year-olds were busy crushing cookie pieces for placement in an odd-looking steel tube, hoping with anticipation that the trail they selected for trap placement along Mud Creek might produce a wandering raccoon in a night or two.

Volunteer instructor Richard Clark of Coleman was mentoring the two, Nicholas Justice of Eagle River and Sammy Spencer of Rhinelander, during a

Lake country: where eagles, ospreys play

By Kurt Kruger

THE GOOD news about all of the lakefront building and water quality regulations that Wisconsin has in place today is that we can claim victory in the field of water resources conservation.

Proof of that comes from looking at the 2012 Wisconsin Bald Eagle and Osprey survey from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), which tells an amazing story of successful wildlife management.

Eagles and ospreys rely on clean water and healthy fisheries to survive, as they both consume fish as a major part of their diet. It’s apparent that they are finding both in this part of the North Woods, which harbors the highest concentration of inland lakes found
