    Ponds and lakes full of huntable birds await sportsmen who come to Michigan seeking waterfowl.

    When you think of waterfowl hunting meccas, places like Stuttgart, North Platte, Eastern Shore, and the Dakotas get thrown around. Sure, those places have a rich tradition of amazing waterfowl hunting, but what do they have that Michigan doesn’t? The answer is simple---nothing! In fact, there are not many places that can stack up to the Great Lake State when it comes to waterfowl hunting. Looking for puddle ducks? Got ‘em! Want the ultimate diver duck hunt? No sweat! Want the skies to turn black with migrating Canada geese? Here you go! Oh, and did I mention sea ducks? Good luck finding...

    The HuntStand Lite app lets you create an interactive overlay of your property using several different tools.

    I really enjoy incorporating technological advancements with outdoor pursuits like hunting. I frequently try to "disconnect," but I keep getting pulled back in.

  • The Nonresident’s Guide to Michigan Deer Hunting, Sep 22, 2014

    Michigan has a lot to offer nonresident whitetail hunters, including ample amounts of public land.

    For decades, Michigan has played host to an army of out-of-state, orange-clad, deer hunting warriors every November. October brings in a plethora of camouflaged archers as well. With a large deer herd, and readily available over-the-counter tags with a reasonable price point, the Great Lake State is a destination for nonresident deer hunters from across the country. As with any hunting trip, there are some definite things to plan on and some significant rule changes for this year.
