I started hunting Rusk Co. 31 years ago. Only spent about 6 days up there in the last 6 or 8 years. Used to see 6 to 12 deer per day sitting 8+ hours on stand with maybe 75 yard visibility. I've seen 1 doe in the last 4 days I've hunted there. Deer trails that are 6 inches deep have become overgrown with brush. Wolf & bear tracks most everywhere I wander on the 360 acres I can hunt. I love hunting the north woods but it just isn't worth driving up from EC anymore. I'm grateful that I have hunting permission on a farm 14 miles from home.
