Everywhere we go we see something unusual or fun.  We meet people on Facebook and all along the way who do fascinating things


Woods to Water's friend Ronnie noodled these out of the river

Noodling - A form of fishing in which a crazy person runs into a lake and searches for holes on the bottom with his foot. Then he inserts his finger into the hole and lets something bite it. Hopefully, it's a catfish. If so, he wrestles the catfish to the surface and drags it to shore. If its not a catfish, he may lose his finger to a snapping turtle or his life to a water moccasin. Believe it or not, noodling is illegal in many states. &nbspOur crazy Facebook friend Ronnie Wilkins noodled these beauties out the Cimarron River.


Gone Country team Keith and Judy visited the cows of Minoqua, WI Gone Country vacations at Minoqua, WI  

The famous(?) cows of Minoqua, WI.  We're pretty sure there's a story here, but we never figured it out.

We went to Rhinelander to sell cowboy hats at Hodag.  While we were there we visited the Hodag.  Gone Country sells cowboy hats at Hodag.  This guy is the famous Hodag.

The Hodag is a mysterious woodland creature that makes its home in the Rhinelander, WI Area. Why the Hodag is only found here is not certain. However, many people believe that it is the clean lakes, dense forests and incredible natural beauty that ties the Hodag to Rhinelander. Eyewitness accounts, along with rumor, legend and speculation, indicate that the Hodag is most definitely green. The first person to see the Hodag was Eugene Shepard, who in 1893 saw what he described as a lizard-like creature covered with white horns. More than a century of sightings and research seems to support this description.
