The late period for hunting antlerless deer with firearms on some private land in Michigan's Lower Peninsula is about to get underway.
The season runs from Monday through Jan. 1. A valid private-land antlerless deer license is required.
Not all private property will be open for hunting during this season. The Department of Natural Resources says the entire Upper Peninsula will be closed.
A list of deer management units that will be open can be found online at http://www.mi.gov/deer.
Hunters can apply for the Pure Michigan Hunt until the end of this month. Three winners will receive prize packages worth more than $4,000, including a rifle and crossbow.
