Story By Associated Press


WISCONSIN - A poll shows strong support for a new tribal casino in Kenosha.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows 49 percent support the casino while 35 percent oppose it.

The Menominee Tribe wants to build an $810 million casino and Hard Rock Cafe complex in Kenosha. The project is running into opposition from the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe, which has a casino in Milwaukee.

Gov. Scott Walker has not yet decided whether to approve the casino.

The poll shows the strongest support for the casino is in the Milwaukee media market, where 60 percent favor it and 25 percent are against it.

The poll of 815 registered voters was done between Aug. 21 and Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

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."
