CABLE, Wis. (AP) -- Some northern Wisconsin business owners are concerned about how new restrictions on deer hunting will impact their bottom line.

For many resorts, bars and sporting goods stores in northern Wisconsin, the nine-day gun deer season is one of the busiest times of the year.

In an effort to increase a deer herd that has been reduced by two harsh winters, the Natural Resources Board has adopted a new rule allowing hunters to take only bucks in 19 northern and central counties.

Ken Thoreson co-owns Solon Springs Mercantile in Solon Springs. He tells Wisconsin Public Radio the change in hunting regulations shouldn't deter local hunters, but it could keep out-of-towners from driving up.
