Department of Natural Resources looking to limit deer harvesting in some counties

UNDATED (WKZO) --  A killer disease transmitted by bugs called Midges to deer and exacerbated by the warm dry summer has prompted the DNR to limit how many deer you can harvested in some counties.

It’s primarily in the southern half of the lower peninsula where there has been higher than usual levels of EHD.  So far the DNR has counted 13-thousand dead deer, but they expect that number to rise 3 or 4 fold when hunters hit the woods 

There will be limitations on the number of deer that can be harvested on public lands in the southern half of the lower peninsula, and further restrictions on private lands in Ionia, Kalamazoo, Branch, Kent and Van Buren counties, where EHD has been most severe.

Check with the DNR for details.

Firearms Deer Season begins on Thursday.
