Last weekend marked the youth turkey hunt. The Gitchee Gumme Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation assisted fifteen youths in a learn to hunt program. Turkey hunting mentors and kids hit the woods around Douglas County Friday through Sunday, and five turkeys were harvested.
Wisconsin is now in the first period of the regular spring turkey season.
l Spring has sprung, but it sure feels like summer. Temperatures in the 60s and 70s have made very comfortable conditions lately.
Trailing arbutus and hepatica are blooming, trees are beginning to leaf out and numerous birds such as the yellow-rumped warbler, hermit thrush, yellow-bellied sapsucker and northern flickers are back in the area.
l Fishermen are still finding fish to catch in the Bois Brule River. It is reported that the smelt have been running this week.
l The Brule River State Forest will hold its spring public meeting at 7 p.m. April 30 at the Brule Town Hall, 5820 Maple St., Brule, WI 54820. Property staff with expertise in forest management, operations, enforcement and recreation will be available to discuss the state forest’s plans for the next year.
