Island hunters face new boundaries

“It’s crazy,” said Will Bunek, one of seven Leelanau County residents on the trip and a founder “Leelanau Whitetails,” a local hunting organization. “I think that parcel is the only public land in the State of Michigan where people were deliberately locked out and the state didn’t even try to negotiate an easement.”

Although a corner of a smaller public parcel on the western shore of the island abuts a corner of the landlocked 160-acre parcel, hunters and other members of the public may not visit it unless they get there by helicopter. However, because it is public land, the owner of the private land surrounding the parcel may visit it at will.

This 160-acres was a little extra bonus from the Engler corruption days to Johnson for his Republican campaign contibutions.
