Firearm deer season comes to a close Tuesday
Tuesday is the final day for a Michigan fall tradition….firearm deer season.
Brent Rudolph is Deer and Elk Program leader for the Department of Natural Resources and Environment. He says deer season got off to a slow start two weeks ago. But, he says:
We have heard talk that both that first weekend…and the long Thanksgiving weekend…having a decent number of hunters.
Rudolph says it will be next Spring before a final estimate for the number of deer harvested during the past two weeks will be known.
The state offered most licenses for antlerless deer this year, in hopes of paring down Michigan’s deer population.
