GREEN BAY - They won't be playing a game, but a little snow shoveling can get you into Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers ask their fans to help remove snow.

The shoveling ritual generally takes place a few times per season at Lambeau.

The outdoor stadium can get heavy snowfall in a short time.

Heating coils under the field help keep the playing surface snow-free, but snow can quickly pile up in the stands.

They were looking for as many as 650 people to shovel Friday morning, in preparation for Sunday's home game against the Steelers.

Helpers needed to be at least 15 years old and will receive 10-dollars an hour.

The Packers provide shovels.

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."
