Two day Liberty Hunt begins Saturday

The Michigan deer season officially kicks off Saturday. The liberty hunt is a special two-day event that happens every year in Michigan during September. This hunt is specifically for youth sixteen years or younger or veterans who are 100 percent disabled. The DNR sees this as a time to get youth and disabled veterans out in the woods with a chance to bag a deer before everyone else gets their shot.

The DNR also says if you are planning to take part in the hunt you need a deer license, deer combo license, or deer management assistance permit. The permit allows taking one antler-less deer only. All hunters participating this season must wear hunter orange while out in the woods.
