The Wild Rose area has long been known for its excellent trout streams.  The village mill pond also has a variety of pan fish swimming its clear waters.

On the weekend, you might like to spend a leisurely afternoon antiquing at the Wild Rose Mercantile.


Guys, while the ladies are checking out the antiques at the Mercantile, you may want to man-shop the hunting apparel and equipment at Lauritzen's. From guns, bait, deer stands, fishing tackle, to camo-gear, Lauritzen's Sport Shop has your stuff!

The new Wisconsin State Record Buck was taken in the Wild Rose area in November 2010, referred to as the "Inda Buck" . The Inda Buck is featured on Lauritzen's Sport Shop homepage with additional pictures of it and some of the really fine trophy deer taken this past year in the Wild Rose area. Congratulation guys and gals on your hunting results!

If you visit the Lauritzens Sport Shop web page, be sure to click on the link for vintage photos. Some of these photos feature one of the first bucks shot with a bow in Wisconsin in the 1930s, as well as some great early fishing photos. Also on their web page is the latest fishing and hunting information for our area! (-- Great job, Tom!)


Or you might check out Slugger's Sports Bar which sponsors sand volley ball, horseshoes, baseball and slow-pitch softball teams, has dart leagues, as well as having two pool tables, and a DJ on weekends. Slugger's is located on the corner of Main and Front Street.
