LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is reminding residents that Archery Deer Hunting season begins across the state on Oct. 1. It will run through Nov. 14, and then reopen Dec. 1 through Jan. 1.

Before heading into the field, the DNR is reminding people to check out the latest hunting regulations in your area by looking at the 2019 Hunting Digest.

They want to remind hunters that baiting and feeding is banned in the entire Lower Peninsula and the Core Chronic Wasting Disease surveillance area in the Upper Peninsula. The exception is for hunters with disabilities who meet specific requirements.

Also, if you're hunting in an area with high deer number or a disease-prevalent area, the DNR is asking you to consider to take a doe this year to manage Michigan deer's herd.
