For a small town—population 2,318 at the last census—Hayward, Wisconsin has some big attractions. There are the Lumberjack World Championships every July. There's the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, home of the 200-foot fiberglass muskie. And there's Moccasin Bar, a dive with its own taxidermy museum.
Glass cases built into the walls hold charming scenes such as chipmunks shooting pool, a boxing match between raccoons, and a court setting with a wolf judge in glasses.
Beside the Big Buck Hunter game are rows of stuffed birds, including hawks, owls, and ducks. A pair of walrus tusks and an oosik—also known as a walrus penis bone—sit next to the slot machine.
