WILTZ: Thinking about great whites and a trip to Hilton Head
Laurie Dawn, our oldest child, turned 50 earlier this year. In thinking about her milestone, it brought back memories. Some of my fondest included teaching her and her sister to swim and dive in one afternoon at the Huron city pool. There were camping trips with the old boat in which...

WILTZ: Catching catfish and old dogs like myself
That adage about old dogs not being able to learn new tricks isn't true — at least for this old dog. I'm talking about catfish. I've enjoyed some great fishing for cats over the years, particularly in the tailrace or "fast water" beneath the Fort Randall Dam, or with bait including...

WILTZ: Dependence on technology has gone too far for this angler
We are going to talk about some "outdoor" shopping today. A few years ago I opened a can of worms when I asked, "What is the better buy—One $100 reel or two $50 reels?" The question inspired much reader interest. Both sides have good arguments, and the question was never satisfactorily...

OPINION: Predator hunters and their competitive events
I had just climbed out of the pickup when a second pickup pulled up alongside me. We were parked in front of the gun shop in Cross Plains, Wisconsin, just west of Madison. "Hello, Lucky!" called out the driver of the second vehicle. "I know I'm lucky, but why am I lucky?" I asked....

Wiltz: The why to when and where we hunt
Why do I hunt? I avoid philosophical views as much as possible, but there are times I can't seem to avoid it. Last week, I mentioned a visit with Andrew, my nephew, who resides in inner-city Chicago. Our worlds, views, and politics are as different as rural South Dakota and urban...

WILTZ: On egg farms and SD's underappreciated fighting fish
During the past year, I've written about wind turbines, pipelines, and livestock confinement units. Were it not for a growing population with a gluttonous appetite for food and energy, there might be easier answers to these issues. As it is, all sides have reasonable arguments.
