Outdoors writer Patrick Durkin

Patrick Durkin, a columnist who has spent more than 30 years writing about the Wisconsin outdoors, appears on CW 14 Focus with Robert Hornacek (WCWF).

(WCWF) -- This week on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek will be joined by outdoors writer Patrick Durkin.

Durkin has spent more than 30 years as a columnist.

Durkin writes about a variety of outdoors-related topics from deer hunting and wolves to running and paddle boarding.

Over his career, Durkin says he's probably spent the most time writing about deer.

"To me it's a fascinating animal," Durkin said. "The way it evokes emotions in people, gets them talking, gets them really communicating back and forth. It's contentious but I enjoy it. I enjoy listening to different debates people get into and weighing in myself each week."

Each week, Robert Hornacek will sit down with a different guest and go beyond the sound bites.
