From the Wi. Conservation Hall of Fame;
“Married in 1931, the Hamerstroms forged one of Wisconsin’s most remarkable wildlife ecology teams. Research fellows under Aldo Leopold, the Hamerstroms became best known for their work with prairie chickens. “
But before they arrived in Wisconsin, they lived in their native east coast. In this chapter called “The Game School, How I Got Us In” from Is She Coming Too? Memoir of a Lady Hunter, we are with them in the first weeks of their marriage. They are living in New Jersey, going to school, learning how to raise game birds, following their ideas of how to move toward a life outdoors with plenty of hunting opportunities. This is not a school like you or I have probably attended.
