Deer hunters may face some tough conditionsSubmitted: 11/22/2013
MADISON - Deer hunters will face some tough conditions when they hit the woods Saturday.

The state's nine-day gun season gets a later start than usual.

A big game ecologist with the DNR says that could mean reduced rutting activity.

He says many areas are fairly wet, which could limit hunter access.

And he says that thanks to the late spring and wet conditions about 40 percent of the state's corn crop is still standing, which will provide cover for deer.

Plus, he says, bow hunters haven't been reporting as many deer in northern areas, mostly because many animals didn't survive the unusually long winter.

Whatever the case, we're wishing hunters the best of luck out there this weekend.

And stay safe.

Classic and antique boat showSubmitted: 07/30/2014

TOMAHAWK - The Tomahawk Classic Motor and Boat Show is a chance for people who love outboard motor boats to come together each year. The show is hosted by the Northwoods Chapter of the Antique Outboard Motor Association and is now celebrating the 35th anniversary of the show.

"A lot of these people have had them, because this is boating country up here," said Northwoods AOMCI President Bob Dalle Ave. "Even the younger ones will say my grandpa had a motor like that or my dad has a motor like that at home. So it's the motors that draw them in."

The show hosts swap meets, boat shows, boat parades, and boat cruises. Out of the more than 200 registered show boaters, many of them planned to do more than just display their boat.
