New Michigan hunting law 3 points on one side or more.

Discussion in 'General Michigan Hunting' started by BigBuckHunterDan5, Nov 22, 2011.

  1. I have heard that the Michigan DNR is thinking about passing a law that in the lower pennisula a buck has to have 3 points or more on one side. Has anyone else heard about this law and whats your view on it. I think that I would be good there would be bigger bucks and let the little ones grow.

    NO I dont know were you heard that. Plus it isnt going to happen. I know your new here so ill bring you up to speed. This subject has been beaten to death and more than likely still is in the whitetail deer managment section, if you wish to argue about it head over there. Welcome to the site sorry if that was a little harsh but this isnt the place to argue about APR's

  3. Speaking on behalf of the southern lower peninsula, a 3 point per side rule wouldn't save many bucks down here. A lot of our yearlings are 6 and 8 points. I understand the theory that you'll save a lot of yearling bucks, but realistically, all you do is take out all the yearlings with great genetics, leaving the spikes and fork horns.
  4. Just like Baiting...NO baiting will not be reinstated....:corkysm55
    Never say never...

  5. Agreed. APR's don't work but a OBR and BOW only might.:woohoo1:
  6. You aren't exactly an old timer here yourself. Let the man speak.

    It'd be a blessing for 3 to a side.

    I think we need a slot limit. Like bucks 110" to 135" anything below or above you have to let walk ;) kidding hahahahah

  14. Id personally like to see areas of the LP have a 4 point on one side APR. Im not saying the whole Lower, but parts of it. Some farm country areas have some whopper bucks, and restricting some of those areas to 4 pts on a side could make for some great trophy buck hunting in just a few years.
  15. I wouldn't mind that rule 4 people btween 16 and 65 years of age only
