Doubling up on turkeys in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

In all of the years I’ve been turkey hunting, it’s almost always been with a partner and we’ve almost always both carried shotguns, but we’ve rarely figured that each of us would be walking out of the woods with a turkey taken on the same hunt.

Michigan bill would nullify DNR’s ban on feeding deer and elk

State Rep. Ken Borton (R-Gaylord) has introduced a bill that would allow Michigan residents to feed wildlife recreationally, nullifying any policy issued by the Department of Natural Resources or the Natural Resources Commission prohibiting such feeding. 
House Bill 4593 would legalize the feeding of free-ranging white-tailed deer, elk, birds, and other wildlife to prevent starvation and/or for recreational viewing purposes.

In all, Ohio’s turkey hunters killed 15,673 birds checked from April 22 through May 28, and that includes the 1,823 turkeys tallied during the two-day youth turkey season April 15-16.
