NRC expands early & late antlerless seasons and liberalizes licenses
The Natural Resources Commission has made it easier for hunters to take more antlerless deer in much of the Lower Peninsula by expanding the early and late antlerless-only hunts and easing some license restrictions.
Most of the counties impacted by expanding the early and late antlerless-only hunts are located in the western and southern half of the lower peninsula.
Meanwhile, hunters in DMU 487 may now use a tag from a firearms license or a combination license to take an antlerless deer during firearms season.
DMU 487 is a multi-county, private-land-only DMU created to address bovine tuberculosis in the deer herd in Northeast Lower Michigan, encompassing the counties of Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency, Oscoda, Presque Isle.
