Default New Year, New Deer Season to Prepare For

I sat down after my season in MI came to a close and took note, as usual, of what I did right and wrong. There are some lessons I have learned over the years that always stick with me for every season and so this year, I decided to write them down in hopes it might help someone else answer their questions from a difficult season. I'd love to hear your lessons and feedback. Hope you enjoy it!

Our Flintlock and late archery opened the day after Christmas until Jan 14 in most of the state and until Jan 28 in three management units.

Only thing to hunt here now are rabbits. Time for the annual ice fishing which is the only reason I still live here in Vt all winter.

Sure not a reason to be bored here since the deer season closed 6 days ago. Rabbit and squirrel season runs till the end of March. Crow season will open 2-1-17 till the end of March also.
Coyote season is now always open.


I have hunted Mid Michigan farm and big woods land for many years.
Michigan's UP big woods since 1992 and Southern Michigan farm areas since 1986.


I can't think Of a thing I haven't learned in my 55 years of deer hunting. Most important thing I have learned, You are not going to see or shoot a buck if your not out side. I have collected two bucks from my yard, so don't think you have to be in the woods when hunting.


As a kid in our Mid Michigan one room school house we would watch a good sized buck one deer season cross the road and go to the edge of the school grounds and lay down nearly under a couple of Douglas fur trees and stay there all day.


Ever walk over to the stone pile surrounded with tall grass and some scrub brush in the middle of a hay field? Ever have the deer heart stopping explode from that grass and brush?


Ever set in a deer blind all day and not see a deer then all of a sudden there one is. It had been laying under a tree top all day and had gotten under it way early in the morning.


Ever taken the time to check out the pond with a 3'x3' hump high and dry out in it and a deer or even two were laying there?

Man I don't even look at that stuff! Just be in the woods, hunt the wind and see what happens! Can't kill them in the bed! Good luck to you as well.
