    I hunt some Consumers Energy property along the Muskegon river. If I want to use an antlerless tag there so do I use one for public or private land?

    Consumers Energy property is private, not public. Public property would be property owned by a governmental authority.

    Consumers Energy Reminds Hunters that Utility Land Is Private Property

    Special hunting provisions apply to Consumers Energy-owned lands bordering its AuSable, Manistee and Muskegon river hydroelectric plant reservoirs, where hunting is permitted. However, construction of hunting blinds and target shooting, baiting, burning and fire pits are strictly prohibited on all Consumers Energy lands. In addition, the use of dirt bikes, ATVs or other off-road vehicles is not allowed on utility property due to resource damage, the potential danger to drivers and passengers and possible damage to utility equipment.
