Copper Country Lags Behind in Deer Harvest

Deer hunters in Michigan are experiencing the best results downstate.

The latest figures from the Department of Natural Resources show nearly 200,000 deer have been reported harvested since the firearm season began last Tuesday.

Montcalm County, in the central Lower Peninsula, led the way with 5,300 kills reported. Sanilac County, in the Thumb area, was second. The Copper Country is among the least productive areas, with Ontonagon County at 684 kills, Houghton County at 616 kills, Baraga County at 532 kills, and Keweenaw County at 93 – all in the bottom 10 in the state.

Hunters are now required to report all kills within 72 hours through the DNR’s website.
