I can't speak for all of the Snow Bowl Road area but I've been deer hunting there for about 20+ years and the bunny population has gone down the tubes as of late. Again I can't tell you it's like that everywhere there, but we hunt in a seldom traveled area and there hasn't been even that much sign. We used to bust bunnies there all the time but it just seemed to trail off. Although in the early morning before sunlight we did notice the coyotes weren't singing this year as much...maybe a good sign for the small game. If you have at it, please file a report...hopefully telling me I was wrong!! Good luck!!JimmyO said:Rick, I dont know about St.Helen but around Grayling where I have a cabin there has been little snowshoe sign. But if you try try Hunting around Cedar swamps near the Mannistee River you can always sem to get a run or two.I would try swamps around SnowBowl road off of 27 or around the big swamp in Houghton Lake.
