MADISON -- The October/November issue of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine gets into the fall spirit with stories ranging from hunting to haunted places.
The cover story, "Whoo's in my woods," introduces readers in a big way to Wisconsin's tiniest owl, the northern saw-whet. A feature, "Getting sidetracked," offers advice to get new riders started mountain biking Wisconsin trails and helps experienced riders up their game.
"Steering the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks" (FWSP) looks inside the group that assists people around the state in caring for state parks, trails and recreation areas. In December watch for the FWSP 2013 photo contest winners who will be featured in a calendar inserted in Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine.
Read about the DNR's Secretary to China and what it means for fostering environmental cooperation and commerce in "DNR Secretary builds Wisconsin-China relationships through youth and education."
In "Give now. Enjoy forever," the Natural Resources Foundation launches an endowment to care for state lands called the Cherish Wisconsin Outdoors Fund.
Hunting stories are featured in "The Blanchardville buck," "Nine days in November" and "Who says you can't take it with you?" Learn about a recently retired Wisconsin conservation warden who has devoted his career to making hunting safer.
The DNR's K-9 warden program takes center stage in "Creature Comforts." Then make sure you read "Wisconsin Traveler" with the lights in - scary stories and legends from state lands will thrill and chill.
An insert to the magazine tracks the history of the DNR's deer research program and gives props the volunteers at the heart of the agency's efforts.
