How does data influence the overall management of an entire species? It’s simple. Data collected by tribal, state and federal agencies shows the story of what is happening to walleye populations over time, and by analyzing data on their age, sex, condition and size, experts can learn a lot about what is causing the population to decline. This data helps the experts create a thorough management plan to restore and maintain a sustainable population of walleye in their native lakes. It also allows state officials to set proper harvest quotas for state anglers and tribal fishers that prevent too many fish from being taken from the lakes. Learn more about how data plays a role in conservation and sustainability in this educational video!

What are fish hatcheries and how do they help restore declining fish populations? Join our Adventure Team member, Zach, as he tours a tribal fish hatchery in northern Wisconsin to learn about the step-by-step process of fish hatchery management, from egg collection to eventual release into lakes. This process is considered a temporary solution that helps restore populations of species like the walleye in their native lake ecosystems, but the ultimate goal is to have these species reproduce a sustainable population on their own. Learn more about the hatchery process, fish life cycles and ecosystem sustainability in this educational video!

Dive into this "tail" of walleye conservation, as our Into the Outdoors Adventure Team member, Zach, discovers the significance of this species culturally and environmentally. Zach talks with environmental experts, tribal members and state representatives to learn more about the threats walleyes are facing in today's changing climate.

On this journey, viewers will learn about the impacts of altered habitats, recreational fishing impacts, and the actions all stakeholders are taking to mitigate those impacts. Through collaboration efforts, tribal, state and federal agencies are working together to restore and support walleye populations in Wisconsin lakes.

So join us to learn how you can be part of the solution.

Why are women becoming the fastest growing segment of hunters in America today?

Their reasons for breaking the stereotype image of men in blaze orange range from connecting with nature, to harvesting their own quality food for their families. In fact, studies show that men mostly hunt to accomplish a “goal” (such as getting their buck) but women hunt for the many rewards they personally get from the entire “experience” of hunting.

Discover all the reasons why more women are hunting today as you watch a mother and daughter reveal how their personal journeys into hunting have shaped important parts of their lives as they also share how other women can become part of the new wave of… “women reshaping hunting and conservation”.

Wolves are vital to the function of a healthy ecosystem because of their role as an apex predator.

As seen in Yellowstone National Park, the absence of wolves has a trickle-down effect on all species in the ecosystem, including plants and even the landscape.

Join our Into the Outdoors Adventure Team members as they talk with an ecologist to learn more about the impact wolves have on Yellowstone National Park.

The relationship we have with wolves today stems from a long history of misunderstanding wolves.

By learning about wolf behavior and how human actions historically impacted their way of life, we can begin to understand the events that followed from a new perspective.

Join our Into the Outdoors Adventure Team as they meet up with a wildlife expert from the Ojibwe tribe to learn more about our history with wolves.

When you hear conservation, you may think research, improving habitat and protecting wildlife, but shooting sports also are a driving force behind funding.

Archery, trap shooting, sporting clays, long-range shooting or simply target practice for fun, all help fund conservation efforts.

On this episode of Into the Outdoors, we will learn more about the different kinds of shooting sports and meet people whose lives have been changed/improved due to their involvement.

Our Adventure Team will highlight: Archery, Scholastic Shooting Sports, Firearm Ranges and Conservation.

In this Into the Outdoors episode, Adventure Team members, Zach and Mya, dive deep into the history and identity of wolves.

They talk with a variety of environmental experts about the relationships with wolves in different ecosystems as well as the cultural significance to the Ojibwe tribe.

Viewers will learn along with Zach and Mya as they find out if the big bad wolf is actually bad or a big help to the environment.

On this Into the Outdoors episode, we catch our dinner!

Bowfishing combines hunting and fishing.

Our sights are set on invasive species in the Potomac River near the Virginia-Maryland border.

This is a family outing with a twist. First, we will bowfish and then, we will learn how to fry up our catch for a fish fry.

We learn more about all of the different species of fish you can target while bowfishing, including large goldfish!
