An Outdoorsman’s Journal: Late Season Squirrel Hunt

Follow along each week on the adventures of Mark Walters, a syndicated outdoor adventure columnist who lives in Necedah, Wisconsin. He began writing his column, An Outdoorsman’s Journal, in 1989. It includes hunting, fishing, lots of canoeing and backpacking. He currently writes for around 60 newspapers on a weekly basis. He hopes you enjoy reading about his adventures!

Early this fall I decided that I was going to do a squirrel hunting story. I have been writing this column for almost 32-years and although I was an avid squirrel hunter as a kid growing up in Columbia County, I have not hunted squirrel since the 70’s.

Lands’ End assisting with Iowa County COVID-19 vaccinations

The Iowa County Health Department announced Feb. 5 it is partnering with Lands’ End to transform the Comer Center, a fitness and recreational center, at its Dodgeville, Wisconsin headquarters, into a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic. The facility will have the capacity to vaccinate 160 people over a four hour period and will eventually be able to accommodate up to 1600 people over eight hours, making it the largest vaccination center in Iowa County. The Iowa County Health Department began administering vaccines, by appointment, at the Comer Center on Feb. 8 and will continue for the foreseeable future.
