DNR Allows Supplemental Deer Feeding In Southern U.P.
Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Due to heavy accumulated snowfall, the D-N-R will allow supplemental feeding of deer in the southern U.P. by permitted groups and individuals beginning this week.
The D-N-R says supplemental feeding is only allowed in the southern U.P. during years when accumulated early winter snowfall reaches a depth that indicates winter stress.
Permitted feeding is allowed annually from January 15th to May 15th in the northern counties found within the Lake Superior snowbelt.
The supplemental feeding provision for the southern U.P. will allow feeding as of this Wednesday in Delta, Dickinson, Iron, Mackinac, Menominee and Schoolcraft counties, and south of the T43N-T44N boundary line in Chippewa and Marquette counties.
Sportsmen’s groups or individuals in these counties who would like to obtain a supplemental feeding permit should contact the D-N-R Wildlife Division at their nearest office.
