DNR Director Makes Stop at Gaylord Deer Check Station

Posted: Updated:

Department of Natural Resources Director Keith Creagh made a stop in northern Michigan Monday.

9&10 News caught up with Creagh at the deer check station at the DNR's Gaylord Operations Service Center.

He says the number of hunters is up by about two-percent so far this firearm season.

Hunter success, he says also seems to be up.

The DNR is currently evaluating a proposal for a three point antler restriction for around a dozen counties in the northwest portion of the state.

If 66-percent of hunters support that, based on surveys, the restriction would go into effect for the 2013 season.
