  • Ice Fishing Tips from DNR Warden, Mike Neal

    Posted by Jason Hillery

    As you know my name is Mike Neal and I am a DNR Warden in Northeast Wisconsin and spend most of my time working on Green Bay and Lake Michigan. In addition to the duties of working along the water I also work the “traditional” items that other Field Wardens work across the state. I haven’t sent anything in since around the deer season and now that the ice fishing and snowmobiling is underway I thought I would pass on a few items to everyone.

    Most people have a “rule of thumb” when it comes to ice thickness. The real answer is that the ice is never truly “safe”. While out on Green Bay this past week I observed ice thickness in areas where there was 18” of ice, to a little more than just 3” of ice. Ice on the Bay of Green Bay didn’t set up real well this year, especially after the strong winds on New Years day so please be cautious if venturing out onto the ice. Traveling on the ice right now is tough in places due to the amount of shove ice near shore. On a positive note the fishing for Whitefish has continued to be nothing short of amazing. Huge numbers of people were on the ice this weekend despite the cold temperatures which brings up two significant points.

    The first one is in regards to the safety of everyone in their ice fishing shanties. Saturday night we responded to two individuals that had suffered from Carbon Monoxide poisoning because of the lack of ventilation in their ice fishing shanty. People need to remember that they need to allow some ventilation when using heaters inside of the ice fishing shanties, and if people start feeling drowsy or getting a headache that can be an early sign of Carbon monoxide poisoning. Get outside the ice shanty and get some fresh air

    Second, with the increase in activity some individuals are getting territorial and taking actions to prevent others from fishing on the ice. One individual actually drilled over 40 holes in the ice where people cross an ice seam in an effort to keep people from fishing in the area where he was fishing. Unfortunately we do not regulate ethics, but in this situation where the individual took steps to prevent individuals from fishing and traveling to and from the fishing areas on the ice, the individual was cited under the “Hunter/fisherman harassment law” which states “No person may interfere or attempt to interfere with lawful hunting, fishing or trapping with the intent to prevent the taking of a wild animal by doing any of the following: Harassing a wild animal or by engaging in an activity that tends to harass wild animals, Impeding or obstructing a person who is engaged in lawful hunting, fishing or trapping, Impeding or obstructing a person who is engaged in an activity associated with lawful hunting, fishing or trapping, Disturbing the personal property of a person engaged in lawful hunting, fishing or trapping, and Disturbing a lawfully placed hunting blind.” Remember these waters belong to everyone and nobody has an “exclusive right” to a particular portion of the waterways. If there is a problem contact the local Warden or report the incident to the toll free TIP Line at 1-800-TIP-WDNR.

    When it comes to snowmobiling people should remember to not drink and drive on any recreational vehicle. Most of our accidents are related to speed and alcohol. If people decide to drink, please drink responsibly and not to excess. Snowmobilers should also remember that there is a 55 mile per hour speed limit at night while operating a snowmobile, regardless if it is on a trail or out on the ice.

    Again if anyone has any questions please send them to the Radio Station and they will get sent to me for answering. Enjoy the winter.

  • Show Us Your Rack: John Sutherland

    So, John Sutherland apparently didn't understand that we wanted deer 'racks' when he sent in this picture... but we don't care.

    Thanks John!

  • Show Us Your Rack: Billy Dorow

    Posted by Jason Hillery

    Billy Dorow bagged himself an interesting rack in Marathon County... I count 11 points, with 3 of them being little kickers coming off the brow tine. Very cool! Even cooler: he's 10, and this was his first deer! WOW!

    Congrats Billy! Nice work!
