Iron County Whitetail Deer Hunting Season 2013

Iron County Whitetail Deer Hunting Firearm Season Opens 11/15/13

Archery hunters have been in the woods, the creek bottoms, and the brushy belts that wrap around agricultural ground since the beginning of October and will take a break as the firearm season brings out the hunters in significant numbers. Beginning with opening day and extending over the course of the two-week firearm season, more than half a million hunters are expected to take part.

The folks at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources expect the 2013 deer season to be a successful one for many hunters, with those that are prepared, patient and persistent being the most likely to bring venison home this fall.

The 2013 “Michigan Deer Hunting Prospects” summary — The report states that deer hunter success in Michigan is sometimes tied to just “being in the right place at the right time,” and that is often the result of being in the field at the peak of whitetail breeding activity. During that fall period, normally ultra cautious bucks will drop their defenses and be on the move much more often.

The state experts say that the 2012 deer season in Michigan was better than the previous year, with hunter success rates showing increases in the Upper Peninsula (UP) and Northern Lower Peninsula (NLP). “Slowly but steadily growing deer populations” in those areas in recent years are credited with improving the harvest.

The number of deer sightings in the region has also increased, and trail cameras have provided images that support the contention that there are more larger bucks around in 2013. The report states that mast production has been strong in the region, and whitetails should be frequenting areas where acorns, apples and beechnuts are found.

There’s still time to plan your Iron County Whitetail Deer Hunting trip.
