We have had the opportunity to add author to our resume over the past few years and enjoy sharing our experiences. In 2014, we partnered with Badger Sportsman Magazine to provide several stories highlighting some of our favorite Wisconsin outdoor adventures. In case you missed them, previews and links to the complete articles are available below. We will continue to share our 2015 articles as they publish. Hope you enjoy them!
