WOODRUFF - You should report dead deer that you find on your property.
That helps the DNR get a better understanding of winter's impact on deer.
This also helps them track the spread of chronic wasting disease among herds.
People that find dead deer can report it to the local DNR station or wildlife biologist.
"We certainly will expect to see some deer dying this year because of the extreme weather," said Wildlife Biologist Michele Woodford. "We'll certainly look to see if they're diseased from something else, but we'll probably expect to see some of it caused by starvation as well."
It's too early to get a full impact of deer deaths, deer experts say most tend to die in early Spring.
Anterless deer tags could be more limited next hunting season.
"Deer tend to congregate in conifer areas or places where there's thermal cover," said Woodford. "So they're going to be in the pines or places where it's warm and out of the wind. What we might see is die-offs in those areas and those we would certainly like to be reported to the DNR, myself, and the other local biologists just so we can go out and assess those deer."
There have been few reports of dead deer in Northern Wisconsin so far this year.
PHILLIPS - Kids see plenty of pressure these days and that pressure can cause kids to turn to drugs.
However, the AM Vets POST 50 teamed up with Phillips Elementary fourth grade students to give kids a different type of stress relief.
Chloe Borchert was one of nearly 70 students who skipped school to fish on Solberg Lake Wednesday to enjoy the Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs program.
"I hope to catch a lot of blue gills and croppies," said Chloe.
AM Vets Commander Douglas Rasmussen says this is the 10th year the AM Vets teamed up with the school. Every year the AM Vets purchase 100 fishing rods to give out to the Price County fourth grade students.
RHINELANDER - For the last 15 years principal Shirley Heise guided and led students at Rhinelander's Nativity of Our Lord Catholic school. Late last week Heise learned she was dismissed immediately with two weeks left to go in the school year.
Some parents demanded an explanation and are still waiting on an answer.
"Couldn't have asked for a better partner," Cathy Deede said.
VILAS COUNTY - People in Vilas County will see a new member of the Sheriff's Department.
His name is Helo, and he's the new K9 unit.
He's a year-and-a-half-old Belgian Malinois from Hungary.
Helo replaces Draco, the Vilas County K9 who retired in 2016.
Helo and his handler, Deputy Zac Stern, recently got back from a six-week long training program in North Carolina.
"Give him a command, they're all in Dutch, that way I'm the only one who's familiar with the commands," Stern said.
Helo will be with Deputy Zac Stern on all of his shifts. He also lives at home with Stern.
Helo is trained in drug detection and apprehension.
"They're able to do things a lot more efficiently than we can and a lot faster," Stern said. "Kind of referring to the tracking, whether it's a missing person or a criminal we're trying to track down, obviously he can do that a lot faster."
Deputy Stern says Helo is a very friendly dog, and if you see them out and about, don't be afraid to say hello.
TOMAHAWK - Tomahawk High School seniors will say goodbye to their school in a couple of weeks. But not before they leave something behind.
