WISCONSIN - The DNR and Wisconsin tribes have clashed plenty of times in the last several years.
The dispute over a night deer hunt is just the latest in the story.
Last week, the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission said Chippewa tribes could deer hunt at night across the ceded territory.
That includes roughly the northern third of the state.
GLIFWC says the time was right because the DNR let people hunt at night in this year's WOLF hunt.
"The state felt like this was safe for the public. So why would not that be safe for the tribes, to go out, night hunt at the point of kill?" asks GLIFWC's Sue Erickson.
The DNR disagrees.
They successfully persuaded a judge to stop the hunt until the next court date.
DNR leaders say a night deer hunt would be unique.
"First of all, it's a different animal. Second of all, the numbers of how many people would go out there and hunt at night are different, and the rules that are being used for those hunts are different," says DNR Attorney Quinn Williams.
Safety is a concern for the DNR.
But they also say the tribes went too far, too fast in approving the night hunt.
"The unilateral issuance of a night hunt order is something that certainly caught us by surprise, and we had very little time to respond," says Williams.
"It's important to know that the tribes have been consulting with the DNR regularly since May on this issue, so it's not a big surprise," disagrees Erickson.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Do bugs seem to be everywhere in your home, even though there's snow outside? One type of bug in Wisconsin spends the winter inside our houses! They look like Lady Bugs, but they are actually not native to this country.
"They're actually called a multi-colored Asian Lady Beetle. They can be anywhere from a pale yellow to a darker orange and they have black spots on them but you'll see some that don't have spots," says Kerri Ison, UW Oneida County Extension.
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.
RHINELANDER - A landfill near Rhinelander saw more recycling last year.
The Oneida County Solid Waste Department had an increase in recycled materials in 2013.
People might be buying more because of an improving economy, but that's not the only reason for the increase.
The contracts from disposal companies also play a major role.
"The contract for the city of Rhinelander had come up and it was re-bid," said Oneida County Solid Waste Superintendent Brian Dutcher. "Northern Waste at the time was awarded that bid or that contract. All of the materials that they picked up for the city came out here."
