It’s an exciting time of year for outdoor enthusiasts. Today, bow hunters rejoice as Archery Deer Hunting Season kicks off in Michigan.

 

The season will run until November 14 and then again from December 1 to January 1.

 

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has made some changes because of the pandemic.

 

They are reducing the number of check stations and drop-box locations, dates and hours operated will be reduced and the number of deer heads that will be accepted for chronic wasting disease testing.

 

While at the deer check stations, hunters are required to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.

 

In addition, hunters will be required to stay in their vehicles while their deer is checked.
