I hunted DMU 452 from 1988 to 2004. In the Huron
National forest. 26,000 acres of it. I have to admit
that there were way to many deer in DMU 452.
Throw out a corn pile one night, And kill deer there
the next night. Drive 2 miles down a road and see
Until the TB scare. Then it was $5.00 a doe tag. Kill as many as you want. It was'nt long, And the deer were gone.
You could no longer bait. Coverd miles and many days
to kill a deer in the end. A bunch of guys and a giant
cedar swamp you farm belt guys couldnt imangine. The

to work for it, You wouldnt kill a deer.
When I started hunting northern Mi with the older guys
alot of them didnt believe in taking does, And it didnt matter how small the buck was, It was good job, Well done.
And more often then not, The older generation is more
apt to doing the bitching. Most young guys wont call
We killed dozens of deer in DMU 452, Not one with tb.
Huntin tis area now isnt worth it. Jake
