LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Tuesday, November 15 marks the opening day of firearm deer season in Michigan, and the Michigan DNR wants to remind Michigan hunters of the new policies and laws this year.

New this year is the mandatory harvest reporting requirement, which means hunters must report their deer using a couple of different options within 72 hours of their harvest.
