Odds and Ends #1

# 1 Signs

Much of the current lake bottom of Butte des Mort, Winneconne, and Poygan was once marsh which was owned
by farmers and hunting clubs, so the lake bottom is the property of some individuals.  There is practically nothing
you can do with the property other than not have duck hunters place blinds on it.  
I find it pathetic that those who benefit the most from public land are those who abuse it the most.  However, it is
 certainly the minority of hunters that blast signs.  This sign shows a partnership between Pheasants Forever and the
DNR to clean up the area, and what better way is there to show your appreciation that to turn the sign into trash.

Waiting for the Eastern Glow

Dawn Wetland
Predawn Glow
It has been far too long since I’ve watched the sun rise, or set.  Today I took the time to watch the sun come up over Poygan Marsh.
