Albino Deer Are Fair Game
(2008-06-06)
(wgvu) - Michigan wildlife officials are dropping a
rule that bans hunting of albino deer, a move aimed at eliminating
confusion over which animals are off limits.
It's among the deer hunting changes approved Thursday by the
state's Natural Resources Commission.
The commission also approved a proposal to disallow hunters with
a combination license from taking a buck with fewer than three
antler points on one side with the regular tag, and with fewer than
four antler points on one side with the restricted tag.
The proposal is intended to help mature the state's buck
population, particularly in the Upper Peninsula.
The restriction for the regular tag would not apply to hunters
in the Lower Peninsula.
