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.
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
