Folks have been asking me to tell them more about the hunting camp “under the big pine.” Well, quite a ways back, TV producer Terry Boeder and I went there and made a show about a homecoming deer hunt at the site of the old Waldo Gang Camp under the big pine at the first beaver pond at the headwaters of the KC Creek in Marinette County, Wisconsin. Then not long ago, I received an email from someone who had seen the old show posted up on YouTube. I’d forgotten it was out there. I took a look, and sure enough, it’s still there.
So that’s what this video is. Take ten minutes to give it a look, if you’re so inclined. It tells a lot of the cool things about the old camp, and the ways the “old guys” used to do stuff. And what still happens in Northern Wisconsin deer camps come the Saturday before Thanksgiving each fall.
