DNR Touts Website As A Start To Hunting Season

DETROIT (WWJ) - As firearm deer hunting season approaches in Michigan - and with many other seasons already under way - the Department of Natural Resources is reminding hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to begin their outdoor adventures at the Mi-HUNT web site.

Originally released in 2010, Mi-HUNT is a cutting-edge application that displays multiple layers of information, which can be customized to fit specific outdoor interests and trip-planning needs.

DNR officials say it allows hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to view, print, measure and create custom routing to their desired destinations.

Russ Mason, chief of the DNR's Wildlife Division, says the program makes it possible to target lands for different types of hunting and outdoor recreation.

The DNR says the updates now make it possible to view seven million acres of DNR and United States Forest Service lands.
