Michigan Deer Season is Here: The Antlerless and Liberty Hunt, Explained

September 17 and 18 marks the start of Michigan deer season.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources took it upon themselves to explain the first deer season particulars involving the antlerless youth hunt and the Liberty Hunt.

Here’s a quick video that describes the official start to the 2016 Michigan deer season.

Those under 16 who wish to participate in the Liberty Hunt can venture alongside registered disabled hunters for their chance at a one-deer limit. It can be a buck or a doe, and there are no antler point restrictions in play. Private or public land is open for the Liberty Hunt.

And of course, the early antlerless firearm season falls on this weekend as well, but you’ll want to check out the official Michigan DNR website to verify which management units are open to the early season.
