MADISON - Wisconsin Natural Resources' cover story, "DNR is helping you Go Wild in Wisconsin" highlights the agency's new portal and licensing system to make it easier and more cost effective to get outdoors. New licenses go on sale in March and readers can update their calendars with the "2016 Wisconsin hunting and trapping seasons" sheet.

Conservation Patrons were surveyed and they report on their favorite outdoor pastimes in "Conservation Patrons speak out." One of their favorite activities - reading the Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine.

DNR also is celebrating the fine work of the Migratory Bird Treaty and its impact on Wisconsin birds in "100 years of international bird conservation."

Havenwoods State Forest has a heck of a history and it comes to life in "It's a natural playground for people of all ages."

"Winnebago ice magic" fits the season with an incredible sturgeon spearing season story. But for those who might prefer to fish in the warmer months, there is "Lured back in."

"Hatching a plan" provides an update on work being done at the State Game Farm to modernize the pheasant hatchery and readers can follow the author and another pheasant hunter into the field with their four-legged hunting partners. Then read about the colorful personality and namesake of the MacKenzie Environmental Center in "Back in the Day."

Many have heard of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress. But they might not know that there is a Youth Conservation Congress? Learn more in "A seat at the table" and read about two teen girls who have a passion for hunting and trapping.

Feel inspired with "Finding Leopold" and its call to take time and read, or re-read, a classic. Plan a trip after reading the fascinating history of the Two Creeks Buried Forest State Natural Area in "Wisconsin Traveler."

An insert, The Fish and Wildlife Account Report, illustrates great ways your money is put to use in Wisconsin.

WNR magazine also has an e-newsletter "Previews and Reviews" to keep our readers informed about upcoming stories and past articles. Sign up to receive the e-newsletter and other email updates.
