RHINELANDER - The gun deer hunt just started Saturday. Hunters can bring business to the area. Businesses are already seeing an impact.
Some people might travel to the Northwoods just for the deer hunting. That means they'll need a place to stay, but not all of the resorts in the Northwoods saw people dressed in orange or camouflage.
"It does not bring a lot of tourism for out of town guest to Holiday Acres, but it's certainly a big deal as far as the area's concerned," said Holiday Acres co-owner Kari Zambon. "I think there are other places that get traffic that we aren't seeing."
MADISON - Wisconsin dairy experts say some farmers are enjoying a sweet combination of record-high milk prices and record-low feed costs that are creating profits in 2014 that are six times higher than previous good years.

He says some dairy farms that milk the state average of 117 cows will see profits totaling more than $200,000.
