Oakland County hunter numbers possibly down for opener

While official car counts haven't been completed, it would appear as though hunter numbers in Oakland County may be down. However, in neighboring Lapeer County, there were plenty of hunters in the woods.
A Monday opener may have had a lot to do with a light turnout. Look for a renewed effort to have future openers changed to weekend's or other days, providing more participation for a larger number of hunters.
With warm weather, deer may not have been on the move like they would have been with colder temperatures.
Those arguing that global warming has arrived will surely have something to say about the unseasonably warm weather we have been experiencing.
There is still time to get in the woods and take a deer. Have a good, safe hunt.

  1. I am not sure about global warming, but remember always freezing my butt off on a stump in some swamp when younger. I just hope everyone enjoys them self and comes home safe.
