2013 Deer, Bear Hunting Season Check Stations Open

Posted: Updated:

The DRN wants to remind hunters that there will be five check stations for you to bring your bear and deer.

The check stations will be in Cadillac, Gaylord, Houghton Lake, Mio, and Gladwin to check deer and register bear. 

Open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on September 21-22.

Bring your deer to the check stations to receive a 2013 Successful Deer Hunter patch. 

You must bring the whole deer or just the head with antlers still attached for the DNR to be able to record harvest information and the age of the deer. 

All bear hunters must register their bear within 72 hours of their take. 

Beginning September 23, select DNR offices will have someone available to check deer Monday through Friday between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM for the entire season.  

The last day to check deer is Friday, January 10, 2014.

The county says one company's trucks are just too heavy to travel on the black-top roads and would probably damage them. The trucks are so heavy that even without garbage in them, they exceed the weight limit. If they do travel on the roads protected under state frost laws, they could cause hundred of thousands of dollars in dama...
