TOMAHAWK - Every year tree stands can be one of the biggest dangers for hunters.
Dick Statton, from Statton's General Store says there's a few mistakes hunters constantly make.
One is putting up your stand alone. Because some of them can be difficult to set up, Statton says you'll do a better job if you have help.
One of the most dangerous things you can do is climb into your stand with your gear.
"If you're sneaking into an area where you know there's a big buck it's not real appealing to load your gun in your stand and make that additional noise. But although the temptation is there, it really isn't worth it to take that chance," says Statton.
Statton says to know your limits, and if you're not comfortable in the air don't rule out a good ground blind or stand.
If you do chose a tree stand make sure to wear a full safety harness.
RHINELANDER - Our record breaking snow storm left more than 6,000 people across the Northwoods without power.
WPS had to rely on 20 extra crews from Green Bay, Wausau and Menominee to restore power.
But getting to the outages was a challenge.
A representative for WPS says workers are expecting even more outages to be reported.
"Not all of the back roads are plowed yet and that's where a lot of outages are located," said Leah Van Zile, WPS Community Relations leader. "Throughout the day as the temperatures warm, we expect to receive additional calls due to the unloading of snow off of the tree branches."
Eagle River had one of the highest number of customers affected by the outages.
Representatives for WPS say this was one of the hardest winters they've had to deal with.
"We've had some really, really severe wind chills which has really made the temperatures below zero. Typically, only in emergencies do we work in those conditions," said Van Zile. "But pretty much any other time, whether it's a rain storm, a snow storm, a wind storm, our guys are out there working, getting that power back on."
The number of outages dropped below 4,000 since earlier today.
If you're still without power to call 1800-450-7240.
