:blink: Found out today that I have an invitation to hunt in Huron County MI. the opening week of firearm season(Nov. 15) . My mom & stepdad have a huge resort home there and some farmer friends are overun with deer. They found out that we love to deerhunt and offerred to let us hunt there. I'm strongly considering taking up the invite since the only cost is lics. & transportation. ...just need a hunting pardner for the adventure ;) for 4 day hunt . AND alot of advice on MI hunting. I know it's in a shotgun only area. :huh:

Phil what is the cost of a non resident tag for MI. Can you use a muzzleloader instead of a slug slinger.

Paul,
Non-res Antlered deer tag is $138 and priate land otc antlerless is $100. I'm checking to see what the regs are because I'd use an inline instead of a slug thrower too if legal. It's a 9 hour drive from State College, so I'm thinking of heading out late Tues.14th and returning late Sat....depending on hunting success, etc. Stepdad said if I'm serious, he'll contact the farmers to secure invitation.

Phil


Make the trip buddy!


Never ever turn down an at cost hunt, I try to live by this and so does Huck. If I can't squeeze it in I won't do it, but if there is any way possible to go on a hunt I sure try and get there.

Sounds good Paul,
I'll start getting the particulars ! :D
*Hey, just had a MI hunter reply to the muzzleloader question over on Real Tree forums and you CAN use a muzzleloader instead of a shotgun in that area.

Woo Hoo Now to find out if there are any restrictions on the muzzleloader like scope, sabots, etc. Michigan in Nov can most likely be a cold adventure but an adventure non the less. May even have to deal with some lake effect snow too. I bet it is rather flat land hunting though. I recall when one of our trips to Canada took us through the whole UP of MI. Man there wasent a hill big enough for an ant to break a sweat. Definately GPS territory.

You'll never get lost Paul cause if you use your compass you always end up wading in Lake Huron ! N/NW/NE anyways :lol: Did I mention that we have to drive right past Cabelas ;)

Sounds like you guys will have a great time. I always thought it would be nice to hunt in some different type of country.

Hey Phil, is there room for two more? It's kinda weird, but Melody and I are planning a trip to Michigan during that time frame to visit with family in the Lansing area. It sure would cool to break off for a few days and hang with ya'll. Melody would not hunt, but would like to hit the woods with me (us). I grew up in Michigan and spent a lot of time in the Huron and Manistee areas camping and canoeing as a kid but never hunted there. Man is it some pretty country up there.

That would be too cool Larry( *Paul...this means" the Cat's Meow" in your generation's terminology) :lol:

Give me a week or so to find out some details and what the landowner has in mind....again...it would be awesome to hook-up with you folks...maybe "Belcher " can split a few hairs!
