The “buy where you burn” principle still applies in hunting season.
The Wisconsin Department of Trade and Consumer Protection is reminding hunters not to haul firewood long distances when they head to their deer camps.
Department spokesperson Donna Gilson says doing so could introduce new pests to an area.
“There’s always that temptation to bring firewood with you because you’ve got some right in your backyard. IT’s never a good idea to haul firewood around the state. And in some cases it may actually be illegal to do so.”
