After hunting Wis my whole life, about ten years ago I decided to do some out of state hunting. I have made some great friends in Montana, SD,WY, Saskatchewan and Ontario, they are no longer strangers, all are good hunters and fun to be with. After recently chatting with Charlie A about a recent article he did in D and D Hunting maybe I should return to the state where I was born and check out the hunt there ? I know Dan S makes several trips a year with out of state guides and enjoys it. I agree with you about your Slice of Heaven in Central Ill, I started hunting as a youngster in Northern Wis, Vilas County. It was from an old logging Camp, block building that was originally only served by the a RR, it is long gone but the memories are still there, out of state guided hunts just keep adding a few more index cards to that file in my head, Life is Good, enjoy!
