Firearms Season Opens For 600,000 Deer Hunters
Today is the opening day of firearms deer hunting season in Michigan.
Officials expect 600,000 hunters to head into the woods this year.
WKAR’s Scott Pohl talked with Brent Rudolph, the Deer and Elk Program Leader with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, about how the deer hunting season is shaping up.
Rudolph says hunters in the southern part of the state might find fewer deer this year. There have been thousands of deaths due to an outbreak of epizootic hemorrhagic disease, or EHD.
