Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.
Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.
I'm going to take the politics out of the forest and put the deer back in. Campaign promise - Governor Scott Walker.
Funny thing happened on the way to deer camp - the legislature is now in charge of Wisconsin's deer season framework and management.
So much for taking the politics out of the forest.
We even have a highfalutin deer trustee who is going to review and report on how we manage our deer. To be fair, it sounds like "Dr. Deer" Kroll and his team are sincere in tackling this task. I bid them well with balancing the needs of forestry interests and the guys that feel the roll of big government is to make sure they see more deer. Good luck with that.
Not that I'm superstitious or anything - but at great risk of inviting the wrath of the Deer Gods - I have to say that I'm seeing a lot of deer. In person and on camera. We almost smacked one last night returning home from Packer Nation's rout of the floundering Vikings.
I'm going to be exceedingly disappointed if the boys in our camp fail in their calling this weekend.
It won't be easy - because if it was anyone could do it.
It's hunting not shopping...
