Hunters, grab your guns! It’s time to bag a buck!

Tuesday starts the beginning of firearm deer hunting season.

The state says more than 520,000 men and women will take to the woods for this year’s firearm deer season.

So, if you’re one of the many heading out to go hunting, we want to make sure you stay safe.

Here are some tips from the DNR:
First, make sure you wear hunter orange clothing so other hunters can see you.

Stay aware of restrictions on baiting, feeding and antler points.

Know the core area for chronic wasting disease. It consists of 17 townships, including Woodhull Township in Shiawassee County.

If you’re hunting in that area, deer registration is mandatory.

Firearm deer hunting season runs through Nov. 30.
