This Week on Outdoor Radio – Wisconsin Gun Deer Season off to a Good Start


This week, Dan Small Outdoors Radio features grouse biologist Gary Zimmer, fishing guide Roger LaPenter, fishing tackle innovator Robin Hancock and bowhunting expert Randy Smith. Jeff prepares for the Wisconsin Ice Fishing Show. Dan and Jeff are deer hunting this week – full report on their hunts next week.

Exclusive to podcast and FM 100.5 ESPN broadcast: Randy Smith, proprietor of Pappas Trading Post, reports in from a mule deer/elk bowhunt in Idaho and offers advice for late-season bow and muzzleloader hunting.

Roger LaPenter, proprietor of Anglers All in Ashland, says fall fishing was great on Chequamegon Bay for bass, salmon, walleyes, perch and northerns and that ice fishing could start anytime with this cold spell.

Robin Hancock, inventor of the Tip Up Locker, explains how his new ice-fishing tool saves anglers time and headaches.

Gary Zimmer, coordinating biologist for the Ruffed Grouse Society, says grouse numbers are down, but there are birds out there for hunters willing to work for them.
