DNR Offering Programs to Help Sportsmen Plan for Bird Hunting Season
With bird hunting season just around the corner, it’s a great time to plan your fall hunting trip.
And now, the DNR says you can find tools to get started on planning your fall bird hunting trip right on your mobile device.
GEMS and Mi-HUNT are two DNR-developed programs to help you build a public-land hunting itinerary.
Nineteen GEMS in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula will be available to explore this fall.
GEMS are large blocks of land managed for young forests, with winding hunter walking trails for those unfamiliar with an area or those with mobility challenges.
Visit michigan.gov/gems for an interactive map, information about individual GEMS, custom maps and information about local businesses showing support .
