Season opens 1 Nov. It's my first year here, so I'm still scouting but things are looking good. 64B where I live especially, its shot-gun/muzzleloader only. 63B is rifle and I'm still working on getting access there.
yea just find some crown land too hunt on so you dont need to ask for access we have pretty much all the animals we need here except deer i go to the belleville, cooper, stirling area for my deer hunting trip.
There's not a lot of Crown land around down here. It's pretty much all farm land. The farmers are generally hunter friendly, but are understandably nervous about letting some unknown city-boy loose with a loaded gun on their property. I've got an in with someone though, I'll know for sure in a week or so.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
