The DNR is predicting this hunting season in the Upper Peninsula was a successful one. For local hunters Travis Whaling, Jr., top, Levi Lakosky, center, and Andrew Martz, this was certainly the case. The three were also named the winners of the 2012 Buck Contest. Martz took home a digital game camera from Top O’ Lake Sport Shop; Whaling, Jr. a Carhartt gift certificate from the Peoples Store; and Lakosky won a dozen roses from The Flower Shop at Ben Franklin. Their names were drawn from dozens of other area entries.
