LANSING, Mich. (AP) — More than $1,500 in prizes will be awarded to seven hunters participating in the Wetland Wonders Challenge.
The waterfowl hunt begins Saturday and will run through Feb. 12, 2017. Participants must hunt in at least three of the seven managed waterfowl hunt areas in southern Michigan.
Prizes include a first-choice pick at a managed waterfowl hunt area for the 2017-18 season, a 12-gauge shotgun, custom duck and goose calls, mallard and goose decoys, and waterfowl hunting gear.
Consumers Energy is sponsoring the event. Michigan United Conservation Clubs will select winners on Feb. 27, 2017.
Wetland Wonders areas were created in the 1960s to provide exceptional waterfowl hunting opportunities. They are funded by hunting license fees and area use fees.
