Hunters Reminded of ‘Do Not Eat’ Deer Advisory Near Oscoda Marsh

The DNR and the Department of Health and Human Services wants to remind hunters not to eat deer in a certain part of Oscoda Township.

A ‘Do Not Eat’ advisory is in place for any deer taken from within five miles of Clark’s Marsh in Oscoda Township.

That borders the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base.

It’s due to PFOS found in the deer last year.

The state says they’re posting signs in the area to warn hunters.

The advisory only applies to deer, not cattle, chickens, or other livestock in the area.
