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.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
