The private land owner controls the deer herd on their properties. Other than hunting regulations management of deer is their option. How we manage our state and national forest lands directly affects hunting. In 16 years Michigan has lost 380,000 hunters or 32 percent. If we fail to recognize the importance of those public forests hunters will continue to disappear.
The next meeting will be scheduled for sometime in the fall. I would appreciate any thoughts that you have on our current management that I can take to the next meeting. Please contact me here.
