WHEEZY OUTDOORS

GROUSE HUNTING BASICS | BEAR HUNTING BASICS

Located in the French River Room 1

Captain Justin Wiese is one of the few fully licensed Captains and Hunting Guides in the area operating full-time and year-round. From a very young age, he had a boundless love for the woods and waters, especially that of Northern Minnesota. Pursuing a career in any other field was just not an option for him.

Alice, who is also a licensed Hunting Guide, was born and raised in Alaska and brought up with the same level of dedication for the outdoors.

With over 30 years of combined experience, their goal is to share that same passion with others. Together they started Wheezy Outdoors, where you are sure to not only get ultimate action but a closer connection with nature as well.
