Bow Hunting For Deer Begins

Thousands of hunters will be taking to the fields as  bow hunting season
begins Saturday (October 1) in Michigan.
More than 300-thousand bow hunters are expected to be out on private and state
owned public land through January first and they’re expected to harvest up to 140-
thousand deer. A deer management specialist with the DNR, Chad Stewart says bow
hunting will help thin the herd in the state and it contributes hundreds of millions of
dollars to the state’s economy.  Motorists should be on the alert for deer darting across roads.
