Snowmobiling

Joe Ross

An early opening for Vilas County trails has snowmobile clubs and local businesses in good spirits.  The date was moved up from Tuesday December 17th to this Friday December 13th at 6 pm.

Vilas County Parks and Recreation Forester Dale Mayo says opening day usually happens after the four-day antlerless deer hunt ends.  But he says this year low temperatures and snow conditions seem to have discouraged many hunters.

The DNR is hosting a series of public hearings on the Deer Trustee report and changes proposed for hunters. But one possibility is concerning Northwoods snowmobilers.
