Bear Hunting Season Begins In Lower Peninsula

Posted: Updated:

Bear season begins Friday across the Lower Peninsula.

It has already been underway for some counties in the northwest part of the Lower Peninsula.

The Cadillac DNR Post inspected its first bear of the season from that hunt.

The bear was taken on public land Saturday in Benzie County.

It takes a lot of points to get a bear tag but the hunter who got this bear says it's worth it.

For him, it's more exciting than deer hunting.

Bear hunting in the Upper Peninsula started September 10th.
