Bear hunters ready for start of new season
IRON RIVER—If Nov. 15 is a red-letter day for some sportsmen, Sept. 10 is just as momentous for others. It’s the start of the bear-hunting season in Michigan.
From now until Oct. 26, hunters will be watching their bait piles or following their dogs in pursuit of Br’er Bear.
Hunters who were lucky enough to get licenses for the first hunting period, starting Sept. 10, can start hunting over bait right away. No hunting with dogs is allowed until Sept. 15.
