20,000 participate in youth hunt

When Matt Spaans went out to hunt his first deer last Saturday, the opening day of Michigan's two-day youth deer hunt, his father faced more than a few surprises.

The two were sitting in an elevated shooting shack when three does wandered by followed by a five-point buck. The male stopped and turned broadside, just 30 yards away, presenting the young hunter with an ideal target.


The rest of the article is good reading as well. One of the gifts of living in Michigan is being close to the wilderness and some of the best hunting grounds East of the Rockies.

All we need are hogs and mule deer here, and it'd be perfect.
