MADISON - The Wisconsin Conservation Congress is gearing up for another round of annual spring hearings next month.
It's a group of influential sportsmen who advise the DNR on policy. Every April it holds hearings in all 72 counties for people to vote on suggested changes to DNR regulations.
This year's hearings are scheduled for April 8.
People can weigh in on changing sturgeon spearing hours; allowing motor trolling statewide; allowing the use of rifles for deer hunting statewide; and overnight placement of stands and blinds on DNR-owned and managed land.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
