The Lac Courte Oreilles Harvest Camp in Wisconsin's Penokee Hills is moving from county land to private property.

The Iron County Board unanimously voted last month to remove the camp on the proposed Gogebic Taconite mine site because they were in violation to a county ordinance. Following that vote, the camp moved some of their equipment across the road onto private land. 

Now, they will move the entire camp to the private land, which they have permission to use.
