Hunters in Michigan say the firearm deer season resulted in just shy of 252,000 deer killed under the new rules this fall.

New mandatory reporting requirements are providing more accurate and fast data about the hunt, which will help the state manage its deer herds.

Some hunters are not happy about the new rules, which include reporting the exact location of their kills. Deer hunting runs through January 1 for bow hunting and muzzle-load seasons, or for does and young deer.

Hunters are expected to take a total of about 400,000 deer from Michigan’s woods if 2022 is anything like last year.
