Sportsman Headquarters
Minong, Wisconsin

I was at the headquarters the other day. Sportsman's Headquarters that is, and if you're a sportsperson it is truly worth your while to stop into your headquarters, too. Located right on Highway 77 [and 53, in] Minong, it's easy to find.

Meet John and Becky Waggoner. They are owners and operators of this large, upscale sports shop. Along with their son C.J. they do it all. I've been told John even wields a wicked broom when the situation calls for it. Personally, I'll believe it when I see it.

Let's see, where to start when you handle practically everything a sportsperson needs or wants for true outdoor adventure. Well, let's talk about the most recent product addition ... Guns! That's right Sportsman's Headquarters is the regions newest source for guns and ammo. They carry rifles, shot guns, black powder, hand guns and accessories including scopes. They have a great selection of brand name and gauges to choose from and fair, affordable prices. Don't go into another season without checking out the new gun selections.

For many years now Sportsman's Headquarters has a great reputation as a full service, fully stocked bow shop. Besides John and C.J.'s expertise, they carry the popular name brands; Mathews bows, Hoyt bows and Mission Parker crossbows. They have all the accessories a bow hunter needs from rests, to several brands of sights, releases, cloths, including Michael Waddel's Bone Collector, and more. They do repairs and sighting. They have a tuning range and can get you shooting bull's-eyes in a few minutes. Stop in for anything bow related, even if it's just to ask a question and check out new products. For instance, have you seen the new Mathews bow? Check it out.

John and Becky are from the area and bought the 4000 square foot store 10 years ago. An authentic log building up front and many large buck mounts lining the front walls make it an authentic Up North store. The product lines have grown and changed as they strive to fulfill the sporting good needs of their customers. Besides all the quality products in store they strive for quality service, too. For instance, if they don't have exactly what you need they can probably get it for you in a few days.

"We not only want people to come in, we want them to come back," John said. "It's true, quality products bring them in once, good service brings them back. We provide both."

If you're a fisherman you'll find an ultimate selection of lures, baits, hooks and accessories including open water fishing and icefishing products like jigs, jigging rods and reels, augers, ice shelters and more. Need a lake map? They have most area lake maps. They carry a number of name brand spinning and casting rods and reels. They have some boat and marine accessories including life jackets and boat cushions.

One of Sportsman's Headquarters most popular products are docks and boat lifts and they are experts in this area. They have standard docks but can also take special orders. Let John help you design a dream dock for the whole family. They can install and take out your dock, too. They know this business and have many satisfied customers from all over the area.

They also carry tree stands and trail cams and ground blinds for the hunt. They carry scent lures and attractants for deer hunting and everything for the deer hunter. And what sportsperson doesn't need a new pair of boots? They carry boots by LaCrosse and Irish Setter. Plus waders and hip boots.

So you see it doesn't matter if it's guns or bows, fishing rods, reels or lures and just about any kind of sporting goods accessory or equipment you need to stop in at Sportsman's Headquarters in Minong, Wisconsin. Besides, John, Becky and C.J. are real nice people to do business with ... you'll be glad you stopped.

Sportsman's Headquarters has a long and vital reputation as the ultimate sportsman store and this year there are a few changes, like new owners. John and Becky Waggoner from Hayward decided this was a business they would enjoy and sold their interest in the Hayward Bakery and Cheese Shop and have taken the keys from Ron and Pat Bowman who have owned the place for 6 1/2 years. John wants to hold the status-quo and continue in the same direction the store is famous for.

"How can you argue with success:'" John asked. "We plan to continue the fine tradition."

Since it's that time of year when you take rod and reel, tackle, bait and high hopes to drift across the sky blue water of the Northwoods. lets start with fishing. Sportsman's Headquarters has it all for the fisherman and can help you with anything, except maybe the high hopes.

Of course we all know a fisherman need lots of extra equipment to assure success. Boat seats, a couple of landing nets, there are many sizes to choose from, fish bags, stringers, minnow traps and buckets and the list of accessories goes on and on.

deer woods.

Sportsman's Headquarters carries Matthews and Parker bows. These are popular high quality bows. Do you need an arrow or broadhead or maybe you just need a target, they can fill the bill for you. Now that you've got the
new bow and arrows you need somewhere to sit ... a ladder or tree stand. They carry Big Rivers, Game Tracker, River's Edge, Strongbuilt among others. John is an avid sportsman and bow hunter and knows what he likes.

"We're sportsman, too," John said. "And can speak to our customers with authority."

But all the hunting and fishing product and supplies aside it is only the beginning. Sportsman's Headquarters carries hunting clothes, sweat shirts, tee shirts, boots, all kind of boots, hats, gloves, and more. They carry a large selection of camping equipment and water toys, too.
