Deer hunting opportunities for people with health challenges

LANSING—Hunters with qualifying disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of reserved deer hunting opportunities at the Pierce Road Hunt Unit of the Sharonville State Game Area (in Jackson and Washtenaw counties). As part of the DNR’s Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors initiative, this 600-acre unit was designated as a restricted access hunt area to provide special hunt opportunities.
Remaining reserved deer hunting permits are available from any license agent, DNR Customer Service Center or online at mdnr-elicense.com. The following reserved hunts are available on a first-come, first-served basis:
• Hunt 0405 (Nov. 18-20)
• Hunt 0406 (Nov. 21-23)
• Hunt 0407 (Nov. 24-26)
• Hunt 0408 (Nov. 27-30)
Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors provides improved outdoor recreation opportunities for wounded veterans and individuals with health challenges and coordinates a support network that facilitates their recovery through connecting with nature.
