RHINELANDER - Time is running out for Northwoods Deer hunters to have their opinions heard.
The DNR has a survey out. They're looking for feedback from last fall's hunt.
Earlier this year, the DNR held Deer Hunters Forum meeting across the state. But if you were unable to attend, you can fill out a brief survey. The deadline is Friday.
State wildlife and other hunting officials want your input to help make improvements for future hunts.
"You get to say how many deer you saw, whether or not it was worse than other years," says DNR Wildlife Biologist Jeremy Holtz. "It's a great opportunity for us to get feedback from folks who were unable to attend those (Deer hunters Forum) meetings."
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
