Wis. shoppers will pay less for Thanksgiving mealSubmitted: 11/17/2013
Story By Associated Press


ACROSS WISCONSIN - For the second year in a row, Wisconsin shoppers can expect Thanksgiving dinner to be a little less expensive.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau says the average price of a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year is $48.40. That's about 50 cents cheaper than it was last year.

It's also a little cheaper than the national average, which is just over $49.

The average price for a 16-pound turkey in Wisconsin is $22.40. That's about 30 cents cheaper than last year. But Wisconsin residents can expect to pay slightly more for items such as milk, rolls and peas.

The bureau calculates the average cost of a dinner for 10, which would include such standards as turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberries.

NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Deer councils in Northern Wisconsin want to see more deer. Harsh winters have decreased local deer population and harvest levels. Leaders in the Northwoods hope local changes with deer population management goals will help.

A 2012 state deer report set up local deer advisory councils. They now recommend whether to increase, maintain, or decrease deer population.

The Natural Resources Board voted and approved council plans for deer populations throughout the entire state. For northern Wisconsin counties, that means plans to increase the population.

"The biggest tool we have to manage deer populations is to increase or decrease the number of antlerless deer that are taken by hunters," said Antigo's DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Chuck McCullough. "If we want the population to grow, we take fewer antlerless deer by hunting."
