Outdoors Radio collects 10 awards at OWAA Conference

Rochester, Minn – At its 82nd annual conference held last week in Rochester, Minn., the Outdoor Writers Association of America announced its Excellence in Craft award winners for 2009. Outdoors Radio's Dan Small and Jeff Kelm received a total of 10 awards for their work in radio.

“We certainly appreciate this honor,” Small said. “It's very rewarding to be recognized by your peers. Our success in OWAA's Excellence in Craft competition is the result of a team effort. We strive to line up good guests who can provide informative and entertaining content for our listeners. I develop a list of questions for each interview, but we often stray from the list when the direction of the conversation dictates. Jeff does a superlative job editing each segment and the show. I guess the results speak for themselves.”

Outdoors Radio has won a total of 57 awards in regional and national competition since its inception in 2006. The program is recorded in Sheboygan, Wis. at 1330 AM WHBL and syndicated on 11 broadcast stations in Wisconsin and Michigan. It is also offered as a podcast on iTunes and, where the show is streamed and archived. Outdoors Radio is also streamed on

In addition, Small's television efforts in partnership with Milwaukee Public TV's Jack Abrams, executive producer/director of Outdoor Wisconsin, garnered another four awards. One award-winning TV entry, “Wisconsin's Black Bear Project,” was also nominated for a Midwest Regional Emmy Award. Another, “National Parks: Wisconsin,” received a “Best Documentary” award in the 2010 Milwaukee Press Club competition and a 2010 First Place award from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.

47,539 turkeys registered in Wisconsin's 2010 spring turkey season

MADISON – Wisconsin hunters registered 47,539 turkeys during the 2010 spring turkey season. The registration total was a 9.6 percent decrease from the 2009 harvest of 52,581 birds.

Zone 1 produced the highest overall turkey harvest at 15,120 birds, followed by Zone 3 with 10,953 turkeys. The best hunter success rate appears to be in Zone 2 with a preliminary success rate of 28.5 percent, followed by Zone 4 at 22.4 percent success.

A total of 217,444 permits were issued for the spring hunt, according to licensing officials. This was a decrease of 689 permits compared to the 2009 spring hunt.

“Despite a slight decline in harvest totals from 2008 and 2009, Wisconsin's statewide turkey population remains stable and resilient. The wet spring in 2008 and the cool summer in 2009 meant below-average brood production for turkeys during the past two years. When combined with more normal winter conditions, the slight decrease in the number of turkeys harvested was expected,” said Sharon Fandel, acting upland wildlife ecologist for the state Department of Natural Resources.

Hunter success rates also fell slightly to 22 percent in 2010 versus 24 percent in 2009, but were still quite good. As in past years, success rates were generally highest during the early and middle hunting periods.

“Hunters recorded a 31 percent success rate during the first period,” says Krista McGinley, DNR assistant upland wildlife ecologist. “Success was 23 percent and 21 percent for the second and third periods, respectively. A decrease over the periods is expected but is still telling of good hunting conditions.”

The preliminary results show that adult toms comprised 80.7 percent of the total harvest, which is higher than the long-term average of 74 percent but less than the 86 percent recorded last year. An increased proportion of adults in the harvest can be a sign of lower brood success from the previous year, although hunter selection can also play a role.
