PollPic .. Crossbows - too many in Wisconsin?In the March 8 edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Outdoors Editor Paul Smith wrote:
Deer hunters using crossbows in Wisconsin last year had a slightly higher success rate and were older than those using vertical bows.
In addition, the use of crossbows contributed to a record buck bow kill in 2014.

Smith reports that crossbow hunters registered 15,768 bucks, compared with 30,433 bucks taken with vertical bows, and that the total buck harvest was 46,201, which topped the previous high of 45,988, recorded in 2012.

Smith quotes DNR wildlife bureau director Tom Hauge as saying, "When I stand back and look at the overall deer harvest, the 47,000 crossbow hunters didn't change the overall trajectory of the season."

In Michigan, where crossbows were legalized for all hunters in 2009, 49% of archery hunters used them. If that trend is matched here in Wisconsin, nearly half of archery hunters may be using crossbows in a few years.

NewsPic1: Chinook salmon stocking by WDNR going very wellNEWS #1 - Wisconsin stocked chinook salmon outperform Lake Michigan average, new research shows

MADISON -- Chinook salmon stocked by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources survive very well and contribute substantially to the state's strong Lake Michigan fishery, new research from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and DNR shows.

As the lake's top predator, it's common for both stocked and wild chinook to travel hundreds of miles to feed as they mature and at any given time during the summer, state anglers may catch chinook stocked by Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois or Indiana. However, the ongoing three-year cooperative research project shows Wisconsin stocked fish have an above average likelihood of surviving to harvest and are being caught in comparatively large numbers in an area stretching from Door to Kenosha counties.
