Early antlerless deer season begins this weekend in Michigan.  Statewide, bow hunting is still almost two weeks away, and firearms hunting is permitted starting in mid-November.

 

Meridian Township is one of a number of mid-Michigan communities facing an overpopulation of white-tailed deer.  The township is holding its third annual deer harvest this weekend.  It's a program that allows pre-approved hunters to help control the herd at specific locations.
