LANSING (WKZO) -- The state will be making 70,550 antlerless deer licenses available for public land for this fall’s hunting season. It’s a slight drop from last year, and private-land licenses will also be down from nearly 638-thousand in 2012 to just over 483-thousand this year. DNR officials say the deer population has been growing in the northern Lower Peninsula due to three straight mild winters, and in many areas are now near the state’s goals.
