Deer Likely to be Moving this Hunting SeasonSubmitted: 11/15/2012
MADISON - The Wisconsin gun deer hunting season starts Saturday and hunters could see more active deer.

Department of Natural Resources spokesman Ed Culhane says this year's season is at its earliest possible date because it's tied to Thanksgiving, which is early.

He says deer will still likely be mating and therefore more active and less cautious.

According to the DNR, there were nearly 376,000 licenses sold as of Tuesday.

That's compared to nearly 403,000 last year at the same time. But Culhane says the Friday before the season is traditionally the busiest single day for sales.

This year, Governor Scott Walker wanted to streamline Wisconsin's hunting season structure, after hunters complained.

There was no October gun hunt for antlerless deer.

There is also no Earn-A-Buck requirement for the first antlered deer.

TOMAHAWK - Most motorcyclists left Tomahawk after an eventful weekend, but some still stuck around Sunday to shop. That really boost business for stores downtown.

You could find bikers shopping up and down Wisconsin Street all Sunday. Tomahawk Surplus Store has been in business for 58 years. The co-owner, Jim Wise, has seen the 33rd Tomahawk Fall Ride start from the beginning. He also knows which stores profit from the event and which don't.

"If you have a flower shop, you probably won't do as well, but the money is in the community. What I noticed is that it really helps the non-profit organizations, said Wise. "A lot of their annual fundraising in two or three days here, which is helpful for them. The money stays in the region and it supports their cause or events."

Preventing Lyme Disease in the NorthwoodsSubmitted: 09/14/2014

MINOCQUA - Lyme Disease can be dangerous if you don't treat it. The faster you know you have it, the better chance you have at getting rid of it. The only way to do that is to know what symptoms to look out for.

That's why Jillayne and Jeff Waite of Arbor Vitae talked to a group of people at the Church of the Pines in Minocqua Sunday. Their daughter was diagnosed with Lyme Disease 11 years ago. They then were bitten by a infected tick a couple years after she was diagnosed, but they were able to catch it in time.

"I've had it twice, but I caught it early. Thanks to my daughter, with what we've learn after going through all of this with my daughter, we know the symptoms to look for and what action to take if we see those symptoms," said Lyme Disease Awareness Network Co-Founder Jeff Waite.
