Hunting Deer On Power Island Open During Bow Season

Posted: Updated:

Hunters are encouraged to bow hunt for antlerless deer on Power Island. 

In an effort to control the deer population on Power Island, Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation is opening the island for bow hunting this fall.

Deer hunting on Power Island is only permitted during bow season, which ends November 14. 

There is no permit fee to bow hunt on the island. 

Hunters are required to have proper deer license and must follow all DNR guidelines and laws.

Hunters are strongly encouraged to harvest antlerless deer. 

Parks and Rec say the deer must be harvested on Power Island to prevent attrition through starvation.
