Michigan’s muzzleloader deer hunting season opens 

 

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters that the 2016 muzzleloader deer season opened across the state last Friday, Dec. 2.

Zones 1 and 2 will remain open to muzzleloading until Dec. 11. Zone 3 is open to muzzleloader deer hunting until Dec. 18.

Hunters are reminded that archery deer season also is open statewide during this time. Archery season started again on Dec. 1 and runs through Jan. 1, 2017.

Hunters should be aware of any applicable antler point restrictions in the areas where they are hunting. Check the antler point restriction map and chart on pages 32 and 33 of the 2016 Hunting and Trapping Digest for details.

In the Upper Peninsula, only deer hunters with a certified disability may use a crossbow or a modified bow during the late archery and muzzleloader seasons. This restriction applies to the Upper Peninsula only.

All deer hunters are required to wear hunter orange when participating in the muzzleloader season. The hunter orange requirement does not apply to those participating in the archery season.
