MERRILL, Wis. — A Wisconsin man has sold his hunting rifles to buy 100 turkeys for needy families this Thanksgiving.

Pat Callahan says his kidneys are failing and he's no longer able to hunt deer, so he decided he'd sell his guns to help others.

It's not the first time Callahan has done something like that. The former auto technician has also raised money for various causes in his home town of Merrill by selling the tools from his former business, Doc's Auto Repair.

Callahan says he and his wife don't have a large income, but they were also able donate $10,000 to the Lincoln County Humane Society earlier this year for spaying and neutering shelter animals.

You can't take your material possessions with you when your life on earth is done. Sounds like a great guy who is storing up a huge treasure in heaven.

      Thanks Rick, i was hoping that at least a few of the areas would be decent to explore.  Looks like a life jacket, spud, hand auger and a lot of walking are in store to get to know the area.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 1/16/17 Fishing up here in the angle has been great! On the Minnesota side the Walleye, Sauger and Jumbo Perch bite has been hot. The early morning and afternoon bite has been best and the fish are aggressive. We have been fishing in 21-28 feet on reefs, gravel bars, shoals and rocks. Buckshots, Lindy Flyers, Ripping Raps, and Jigging Raps have all produced fish. Live minnows with demon glow and a bobber have also been successful. Colors of choice have been red glow, gold, pink and green glow. A lot of nice fish in the 29 inch range have been caught as well as large quantities. Over on the Ontario side the Crappie and Walleye bite has been awesome, better than the days of Red Lake. We have also hooked into the Jumbo Perch and they are of good size and quantity. We’ve been fishing in the 28-34 foot range. Something to know about when fishing up the deep waters of Ontario is the crappie mortality rate is high when releasing crappies in 25' of water or greater.  We encourage guests to catch your desired number of crappies up to your limit and then go target other species of fish.  Crappies and Walleyes sometimes appear to swim back down the hole when released but often times do not make it due to being reeled in so fast from great depths. We still advise anglers to stay on marked trails due to the heavy current changing ice conditions. Until next week, good luck fishing!
