NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Deer councils in Northern Wisconsin want to see more deer. Harsh winters have decreased local deer population and harvest levels. Leaders in the Northwoods hope local changes with deer population management goals will help.
A 2012 state deer report set up local deer advisory councils. They now recommend whether to increase, maintain, or decrease deer population.
The Natural Resources Board voted and approved council plans for deer populations throughout the entire state. For northern Wisconsin counties, that means plans to increase the population.
"The biggest tool we have to manage deer populations is to increase or decrease the number of antlerless deer that are taken by hunters," said Antigo's DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Chuck McCullough. "If we want the population to grow, we take fewer antlerless deer by hunting."
MILWAUKEE - Seven people have been charged with running a large drug distribution operation out of a house on the south side of Milwaukee.
Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern announced Thursday that investigators have seized sizable amounts of cocaine and heroin, weapons and more than $100,000 during searches in Milwaukee and Green Bay in relation to the case.
