I’m hunting with Merl Schonherr and his two sons on 3,000 acres of rolling hardwoods near Ridgeway, Wisconsin. Merl is the first squirrel-hunting architect I’ve ever run into, but then he’s not like any other architect I’ve met. He’s modest, friendly, thrifty, and talkative. He puts on the Annual Hyde Area Squirrel Hunting Tournament, headquartered at nearby Hyde Store, a pub so old, nobody seems to know who owned it first or when. Hyde’s has a pool table, $2 beers, pizza, stuffed deer and fish, and a loyal local clientele. The tournament entry fee is $20 per two-man team, and Merl doesn’t make a dime off it.
