  1. Hi all,

    Looks like we'll be moving from Michigan to southern Wisconsin.

    Just looking for some high level info.

    I have a 21' Lund I/O (15hp kicker with TR-1 auto-pilot etc.) that I use for Walleye in Saginaw Bay and Salmon out of Ludington. I expect to use it on Lake Michigan around Kenosha for Salmon/Trout.
    What inland waters should I start researching (my wife doesn't like the going out on the Big lakes) ?

    I do a lot of different types of shooting. Used to do a LOT of Cowboy Action Shooting (All over Michigan + State shoots in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Tenn. and Regionals). But haven't really been serious about it in the last 4-5 years.

    I've done some serious Long Range Shooting/Hunting and would like to find a club that has a long distance range, 1000yd's or more would be great, but that's probably a pipe dream.

    I grew up in Colo. and go back every couple years for Deer and/or Elk. I've done a little whitetail hunting here in Michigan, but not real serious.

    Anyway, Hi all. I'm a little anxious to see what new adventures we'll have in Wis.

  3. If you bow hunt for deer you can start in September and it ends in January, you couldn't do that in CO. The amount of public land in Wisconsin is not a secret, but most is not in the southeast part of state. The big rivers are open season for fishing I think all year.
