Today on AMKE we talked about the DNR's projections for this year's dear season.While the hunt numbers have yet to be tallied, the DNR says Wisconsin appears to be on track for a high deer harvest this year.  Numbers for opening weekend were up this year compared to last year. DNR biologists expect numbers to be up for the entire hunt.

 

Crowds poured into stores on Black Friday, but ABC News reported store sales were down from 2011.  But retailers expect more online shoppers on today for Cyber Monday, and the Better Business Bureau shared tips for those considering online purchases.
The Better Business Bureau advises online shoppers to make sure they trust the website where they're making purchases. Experts said to keep an eye on the site's privacy policy to determine what information is being stored.
 
Tough weekend for Wisconsin football, as the Badger lost to Penn State 24-21 in OT, and the NY Giants beat the Packers 38-10.  Good news for hockey fans, as the Milwaukee Admirals had a 3-2 road win over the Grand Rapids Griffins Sunday.
 
Today's Secret Soundtrack featured some great holiday tracks, form a not-so Christmasy movie.
 
Our three songs were;
 
1. Christmas In Hollis - RUN DMC
 
2. Skeletons- Stevie Wonder
(what a terrible music video, WOW)
 
3.) Let It Snow- Vaughn Monroe
 
If you couldn't tell from that last video, the movie was DIE HARD. 
Congrats to Rick in Milwaukee, who picked up a Stone Creek Coffee gift card.
