It's not just you
During a bout of exploring I came across the Menard Island Resource Area on the outskirts of Tomahawk. It is a 1600+ acre preserve that straddles the Wisconsin river and protects over 5 miles of its run plus associated uplands. A lot of it is logged, but judging by the tracks, the critters don't mind. I snowshoed there the other day. I will be back.
