We spend all day scouring the Internet while we look for bidding information for JobTrac. So it’s inevitable we come across a few strange entities. Here’s a few:
1. Deer Capital of Wisconsin
Wisconsin is recognized as one of the premier deer hunting states in the nation. It’s home to a thriving deer herd, and Jackson County has earned the title “Deer Capital of Wisconsin” for its large deer population and harvest over the years.
2. Hamlin Garland, one of Wisconsin’s foremost authors, was born early in the morning of September 14, 1860, in a small log cabin in West Salem. His parents were Richard and Isabel McClintock Garland. In 1861 the family moved to Green’s Coulee near Onalaska, where they stayed until moving to Iowa in 1869.
4. Hawk Ridge, Minn. — More than 6,000 raptors pass over Hawk Ridge last week.
