MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Conservation Congress plans to ask outdoor lovers this spring whether state wildlife officials should again offer bounties for deer infected with chronic wasting disease to get a better read on the disease’s prevalence and control its spread.

Living Without Goals
Some of us are natural planners who know what we want to accomplish and set out to achieve it, whereas others are more flexible and spontaneous.
Both approaches are determined by personality, background, and other factors but come with their own dangers. The organized people may be so focused on controlling their life that they leave God out of the picture, and the easygoing folks may end up never accomplishing what God intended for them.
In today’s passage, we see the Christian life compared to a race. As believers, we are admonished to exercise discipline and self-control in order to obediently follow the heavenly Father’s plan for our life. Otherwise our efforts will be as unproductive as a boxer who throws wild punches and never hits his mark.
Q: Does the color of a deer blind make any difference at all?
A: Absolutely. A well thought out paint design can represent the crucial difference between your success and failure when it comes to trophy whitetail hunting - one of the most perceptive paint schemes for deerstands used in Kansas by BigDaddy at HuntSports was to paint trailer blinds to look like John Deere Equipment - deer are smart and they have learned ove many years of seeing that John Deere Green and Yellow in and out and all about the country side .. no danger from these guys! Sure other things help too like a blackout interior, perforated window coverings that restrict the "inview" .. so the windows aren't noticeable and the interior view of any contents are concealed.
Q: Does the tall deer blind exterior paint matter? Should a deer blind be painted with a camouflage pattern?
A: The sudden appearance of an elevated tower stand is not something that can be hidden from whitetail deer - however, one of the most perceptive paint schemes for deerstands has been used by BigDaddy at HuntSports - tall tower blinds finished in cloud patterns, grey and white deer stand finishes - just remember this - deer will quickly determine that the tower blind is not a source of danger and will soon ignore it altogether. A good towerblind will become a familiar part of the environment .. even for those trophy whitetails.
Q: How does a shooting tower stand help prevent the deer from seeing me and my movements?
A: Whitetail deer do not see the world as we see it. Deer are designed to see in "low light" such as dawn, dusk, and night time, and to detect even the slightest motions. Think about it this way - you can't see motion behind a wall and it is virtually impossible for deer or other wildlife near a tower stand to silhouette you between windows because of angles etc. there are also other ways to minimize these possibilities such as the use of the perforated 50/50 window film as offered by HuntSports.
Q: How do your elevated hunting stands help with scent control?
A: Whitetail deer have millions of olfactory receptors in their nose - compare 5 million in humans and 220 million in dogs - and deer have more! The incredible nose of a whitetail's sense of smell is estimated to be 10,000 times better than ours. This extraordinary capability represents a deer's primary line of defense - and is pretty tough to beat 100% of the time. The enclosed deerstands and tower blinds tend to limit scent dispersal. Although not totally "scent proof" - the higher off the ground you are the scent zone is far above the deer and factored with wind velocity and direction can make the real difference in your trophy whitetail deer hunting success.
Q: I'm tired of being busted while hunting deer - How do different blinds and stands keep whitetail deer from detecting me?
A: Elevated deerblinds and tower stands are the ideal deer hunting stands - their elevated position conceals you from the nose, eyes, and ears of trophy whitetail deer. I'd suggest you find and read John Wootters book - "Hunting Trophy Deer," which was published in 1977, and was decades ahead of its time.

Why We Should Set Goals
Scripture repeatedly encourages believers to trust God for needs and guidance. But how does dependence on the Lord fit with setting goals for our life? Some Christians interpret these biblical admonitions to mean we should not make plans at all because doing so hinders trust. However, this perspective turns trust into apathy instead of acknowledging it as an important discipline.
Setting goals helps us determine where to focus our energy so we can accomplish the work God has for us to do (Eph. 2:10). When the evangelist and preacher Jonathan Edwards was 19 years old, he made 70 resolutions, which guided his life—and he had an amazingly productive ministry.
