Best season ever for my hunting group.
Dad 173 lbs 8point and one doe
Uncle 17 inch wide 8 and 3 does
Best friend an 8 and 3 does
His brother killed a 19.5 inch wide 8 point.
My dad's oldest bro got an 8 and a half rack buck with 6 points on one side.
I shot a 6point and 1 doe
All of this hunting occured in 7 different counties by the way.
I never remember a 1 buck rule in MI and I have been going hunting since the late 1980's
In fact I remember when you could shoot 4 bucks a year.
Hear is a DNR link
"In 1991, the bag limit for bucks was reduced from four (two in archery plus two in firearm or muzzleloading seasons) to two bucks in all seasons combined."
Also the DNR get's less money then it used to from the genral fund thats why they have had to layoff so many CO's
DNRE receives little money from general tax dollars (General Fund). In fact, out of the DNRE's total budget, only 9 percent comes from the General Fund - and half of that 9 percent goes to local governments, with only the remaining 4.5 percent to conservation.*
