Ray Heimberger remembers: "The Calcite Plant at Rogers City is the worlds largest limestone quarry, approximately five (5) miles in diameter.  WLC was on the grounds and in a little house near the Lake Huron beach.  On a warm night, with windows open and only the screen door closed, you could hear loud sounds of pawing and snorting.  When you shined a light you would see a large number of wild deer around the building. The Limestone Div. occasionally gave permits for deer hunting."  As Jim Leow's photo above shows they were still coming in 1997.
