TOMAHAWK - The rain didn't stop a big crowd from going to an event that's become tradition.
The Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce hosted its 52nd Venison Feed.
It kicks off the gun deer hunting season which starts tomorrow.
You'll find grill master Gregg Albert at the same spot this year as he has for decades.
"From what we know it's one of the last in the country that even exist.
If I had to say one word it would be tradition," said Albert.
The Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce's 52nd Venison Feed brought out some old timers and some newbies to kick off the start of the deer hunting season.
Albert's grilled for about 33 years.
I found Rhinelander's Steve Norman's on his sixth free venison burger.
"Sweet it's good. I'm on my last one," said Norman.
He's not a hunter.
"I just fish like heck," said Norman.
However, Norman still gets a lot out of the celebration.
