Setting sights on a waterfowl hunt at Michigan’s Nayanquing Point

Looking up hunting rules on the handy Michigan DNR Hunt Fish phone app, I spotted the “Drawing results” box and remembered I’d entered a permit lottery.
Clicking that button, I discovered I’d been drawn for a afternoon hunt one of the early weekends of the season at the Nayanquing Point Wildlife Area, a longtime favorite spot, maybe because of its smallness compared to Fish Point or Shiawassee. Early in my outdoors writing career I covered the conversion of Nayanquing to managed hunting, with numbered blinds and daily drawings to accommodate more hunters.
