Natural Resources Board to review deer hunt numbers
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The state Department of Natural Resources Board is set to review the 2017 gun deer hunt.

The board will hear a presentation from Chief Warden Todd Schaller during a meeting Tuesday afternoon in Madison.

Preliminary data shows hunters killed 195,738 deer, down slightly from 196,738 deer in 2016. The buck harvest increased by half a percentage point this year, though.

The DNR sold fewer licenses this year than last, 588,387 compared with 598,807. The agency sold 1,814 mentored-hunt licenses to children 9 years old or younger. Gov. Scott Walker eliminated the state's minimum hunting age last month.

The board was also expected to vote on deer management unit boundaries for 2018 through 2020. The DNR is generally recommending most unit boundaries remain the same as in years past.

MADISON, WIS. (AP) - Madison officials say Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violated city policy by detaining at least six immigrants without letting police know ahead of time.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval says the department has a working relationship with ICE, but the federal agency did not follow protocol. Koval says ICE has agreed to call the assistant police chief before making arrests in Madison. This time the agency called the Dane County Communications Center.

Koval says the arrests were made at separate workplaces and are not considered to be part of a raid. He says the community is in "hyper-warp distress mode."

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says ICE told city officials the people arrested are believed to have committed serious crimes, but he does not know the specifics of the investigation.
