Most local teams already know their first regional opponent or what city they be competing in for the first portion of the postseason.

Lorna Marquardt is a former Shawano mayor.

Hunting is always full of surprises. Bagging the quarry is welcome, but not required to have a fun, successful hunt. Although I didn’t bag a turkey this spring, I had quite an experience last Saturday (May 12) that left me chuckling.

I also captured proof of the humorous animal display on video and in still photos with my point-and-shoot Canon camera.

Animal behavior is continually studied around the globe, but hunters probably see more animal behavior than biologists or other scientists because there are far more of us than the latter. We are out there in the bush, observing the interaction of creatures, many of whom we don’t think would normally interact.
