Duck hunting and river dredging

The Fox River is being dredged to clean up the PCBs that were dumped over the course of decades by the region's paper companies.

The gist of the story: Ducks Unlimited and the Fox River Cleanup Project are working together to make sure that no dredging workers get shot. It's unlikely it would happen, since the hunters are using pellet guns and the dredgers are probably out of range... but better safe than sorry, I suppose.

Tom Olejniczak, right, his black lab Bronko, 12, and friend John Gray pose for a photo by their duck blind at Olejniczak's home along the Fox River in De Pere, Wis., Thursday evening, Sept. 17, 2009.
