The nation is dealing with a surplus of cranberries, which could potentially result in 25 percent of this year’s crop being discarded. We talk about the impact this could have on Wisconsin and how to save the excess cranberries. We also discuss the drop in hunting license sales over the past 20 years and how the fall hunting season is shaping up. And we dig into issues on the State Capitol Report.
