I will be shocked if Baldwin and Gladwin don't see the October archery only hunt extended into their respective management units.I am with you Smitty. I am really concerned with the number of bears they are trying to take out of the Baldwin Unit. I have hunted the Baldwin Unit for thirty years and can already see the difference in numbers compared to ten years ago.
You mean that they are removing too many?I am with you Smitty. I am really concerned with the number of bears they are trying to take out of the Baldwin Unit. I have hunted the Baldwin Unit for thirty years and can already see the difference in numbers compared to ten years ago.
Last year of over the counter tags was 88 i believe. Might of been 89....struggling to remember if I was a junior or senior that year. I was in highschool and I bought in the last year of over the counter tags. We had the lottery with no preference point system until year 2000. The preference point system started then.I believe the lottery system did not get implemented tell 1995 maybe 1997.
I tried to fill out the survey today, but wasn't allowed to. Perhaps it was because I failed to apply this year.Did you all get it from the DNR?
I completed the survey today. It asked whether you agree or disagree with newly proposed harvest and tag quotas, as well as questions about bait barrels.
Yeah and more than likely dog hunters ran his bear off.. I've seen more than my far share of that going on even on large sections of private. However it's more often just a function of most hunters having their eggs all in one basket...Never ceases to amaze me how some people think it is easy to fool a Michigan Black Bear into to being tagged. I know someone within 10 minutes fo Woodville who had three nice bear coming into his baits during August and half of September. Guess what happened once season opened. He hunted everyday all week long from two in the afternoon until dark. Tag soup was on menu.
