Aldo Leopold's 'Alder Fork'

“‘Knowledge of the whereabouts of good hunting or fishing is a very personal form of property,’ Aldo Leopold wrote. ‘It is like rod, dog, or gun: a thing to be loaned or given as a personal courtesy.'” Aldo Leopold is perhaps best remembered for his A Sand County Almanac, which is widely regarded as one of the classics of nature writing. Harry L. Peterson and a friend took it upon themselves to find one of the creeks mentioned in Leopold’s landmark book and report their findings in Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine.
