The Department of Natural Re-sources reminds hunters that thearchery deer season openedstatewide on Monday, Oct. 1. Theseason runs through Nov. 14, thenreopens after the firearm deer sea-son for late archery hunting Dec. 1through Jan. 1. Autumn is a greattime to enjoy the outdoors in Michi-gan and bow hunting can be donewhen the weather is mild.During the archery season, anarchery license, combination li-cense regular tag or combination li-cense restricted tag can be used toharvest either an antlerless deer ora qualifying buck. Antlerless-onlylicenses are also valid during thearchery season.If a hunter chooses to harvest abuck with an archery tag or combi-nation license, the following restric-tions apply:Using an archery tag: bucks musthave one antler at least 3 incheslong, except in DMUs 117, 135 and245, where one antler must have atleast two points, and in DMUs 045,115 and 122, where one antler musthave at least three points.Using a combination license reg-ular tag: bucks must have oneantler at least 3 inches long, exceptin DMU 245, where one antler musthave at least two points, and inDMUs 045, 115, 487 and the entireUpper Peninsula (U.P.), where oneantler must have at least threepoints.Using a combination license re-stricted tag: bucks must have atleast four points on one side.Hunters are limited to purchas-ing only two kill tags for bucks eachyear – either an archery tag and aregular firearm tag, or a combina-tion license with two kill tags validduring both the archery andfirearm hunting seasons. Regard-less of the types of licenses pur-chased, if two bucks are harvested,one of them must have at least fourpoints on at least one antler. Also, if a buck is harvested in the U.P. orDMU 487 with an archery tag, a sec-ond buck cannot be taken from thatsame hunting unit (U.P. or 487) witha regular firearm license. Huntersare encouraged to be familiar withthe antler point restrictions in theirchosen DMU before purchasing a li-cense.All archery and firearm seasonsare open to crossbow hunting, ex-cept in the U.P., where deer hunterscannot use crossbows after Nov. 30unless they have a disability per-mit. The free crossbow stamp isstill required for all crossbowhunters.Hunters are also reminded thatthe baiting of deer is prohibited inAlcona, Alpena, Montmorency andOscoda counties, and within thetownships of Oscoda, Plainfield,Wilber, Au Sable and Baldwin inIosco County. Elsewhere, baitingmay occur only from Oct. 1 to Jan 1.No more than 2 gallons of bait maybe present at any hunting site at atime, and it must be spread out overa minimum 10-foot by 10-foot area.If hunters do choose to use bait, theDNR suggests they not place baitrepeatedly at the same point on theground, and only place bait outwhen they are actively hunting.This will minimize the chance of transmission of any disease thatmay be present, either deer-to-deerat bait sites or through contamina-tion of bait.In addition to bringing the open-ing of another Michigan deer sea-son, this fall marks the 75thanniversary of the Pittman-Robert-son Wildlife Restoration Act (PR),the program that directs fundsfrom federal excise taxes onarchery equipment, firearms andammunition back to state wildlifeagencies for wildlife conservation,restoration and hunter education.“The department is extremelyproud of the recreational and eco-nomic benefits of bow hunting, andof the important way in whichmore than 320,000 archers supportwildlife management in Michigan,”said DNR deer and elk programleader Brent Rudolph.“The vast majority of all wildlifeconservation efforts have beenfunded by hunters and trappersthrough the equipment and licensesthat they buy,” Rudolph said, “andthe DNR, Michigan citizens and allwho benefit from Michigan’s natu-ral resource-based economy are in-debted for those contributions.”Detailed information about deerhunting regulations can be found inthe Michigan Hunting and Trap-ping Digest, available at all licensevendors, DNR Operations ServiceCenters and online at www.michi-gan.gov/hunting.
