Muzzleloader season opens today in Michigan

One shot, one deer. The single shot deer hunting season kicked off Friday, Dec 5th.

Brent Rudolph is a deer specialist from the Michigan DNR. He said it’s important to remember the differences between hunting zones.

“Ya know we have different zones in the state that we use for a variety of different species actually. So zone 1 is upper peninsula, that’s pretty easy to identify. Zone 2 is from Muskegon over to Bay County. And we use those different areas because there’s a little different climate, there’s different habitat. And so any variety of our species there’s a need to manage a little bit differently according to those boundaries.”

There are three zones in Michigan. Zones one and two are both open until Dec 14th, while zone three affords hunters an extra week to bring home the venison.

Rudolph said zone three is open longer because there tends to be larger deer concentrations in that area.
