These hunters keep a keen eye for antlers

Written by

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Outdoor living for hunters and anglers is dictated by the season. Glance out at Geneva Lake or any number of frozen waters and you’ll now see dedicated ice fishermen. Fall in Wisconsin is famous for family get-togethers in the northwoods -- tracking deer and telling tales. There is one hunting situation, however, that’s not dependent on the changing of fall colors or snow-covered woods, -- shed hunting.

Long before sight-ins or deer hunters widows’ weekends became popular, graceful bucks were dropping their antlers, signaling a new year in their life cycle. While arguably not offering the bragging rights of big game hunting, shed hunting can provide a scenic, quiet retreat without the worry of tags, bows or bullets.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- For the Rev. Charles Payson, a retired Episcopalian minister, and his wife, Evelyn, who own a home on the shores of Lake Koshkonong near Fort Atkinson, it began with their auditing a University of Wisconsin-Whitewater course about water resources. In the decade since their retirement, the Paysons have audited UW-Whitewater courses that included African-American literature, world religions and ethnic groups that settled in Wisconsin.

“We both enjoy not only the classes, but the university community,” Charles Payson said. “There’s a wonderful intergenerational contact with students and faculty.”
