Guide’s Exhibit

Exhibit Date: 2012 - 2014

The Guide’s Exhibit featured many of our past and present Northwoods fishing and hunting Guides.  Interviews with these Guides and/or their families by Dr. Barbara Wilkinson brought together a wonderful exhibit with the photos, stories and tales of the early days of guiding, and the men and women who were the Guides!

A featured book, Guides Past & Present by Dr. Barbara Wilkinson, tells the stories of about 30 of these Guides.  It is dedicated to the Guides Past and Present of Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin.  This book is available through the Land O’ Lakes Historical Society.

A display of lures collected by guides Abe and Ted Eberly from the 1930’s on.  Some of them were made by the Eberly’s.  The collection was loaned to the Guide’s Exhibit by the Bill Martin family and later donated to the Land O’ Lakes Historical Society.  Pictured below is Barb Wilkinson and Sandie Pauly accepting the lure display.
