Independence Hunt

IMG_1355Among the myriad of deer hunting seasons offered here in Michigan, bow season, rifle, youth, disabled veteran, black powder, crop damage, over populated areas, and others, is the Independence hunt.

This firearm deer hunt will take place on private lands or public land requiring an access permit and open to the Independence Hunt by lottery from October 16-19, 2014. Veterans with 100-percent disability or rated as individually unemployable by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs may participate in this hunt. In addition, hunters who possess a permit to hunt from a standing vehicle or to hunt using a laser-sighting devise, and hunters who are legally blind may also participate.

During this hunt, a firearm or combination license may be used for an antlered or antlerless deer. Antler Point Restrictions do not apply. The bag limit for this season is one deer. All hunters participating in this season must wear hunter orange.

This nice 7 point was taken in the area on Oct 19 by someone who doesn’t let too many things stop him from enjoying the outdoors
