Park Service aiming to shoot more deer on Apostles
Whitetail deer are swimming their way into trouble on the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, and park officials are gunning for them.

Park resource managers are concerned that deer, which historically have not lived on the islands, are moving in and eating a rare plant called the Canada yew.
