TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Wildlife officials say Michigan's deer herd is in good shape and predict a strong fall hunting season.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources' annual forecast says conditions across the state are as good as in 2019 or better, thanks to a mild winter and plentiful food.
The season began with this weekend’s Liberty Hunt for young people and hunters with disabilities.
The DNR says a number of rules have been revised to make them more understandable, grant more flexibility and provide more value for time and money.
