Firearm deer season begins in just two days and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is ready to answer your questions before you head to the woods.
Tuesday, the DNR will host an online forum to answer questions.
Officials will address everything from the state of the deer population, to the rules you need to know.
Keynote speakers include the Wildlife Division's deer and elk program leader Brent Rudolph and wildlife veterinarian Steve Schmitt, as well as Law Enforcement Division Assistant Chief Dean Molnar.
"We are excited to use this interactive technology to share information with the public on the cusp of Michigan's firearm deer season opener," said DNR Director Keith Creagh. "Our panel of experts is looking forward to answering a broad range of questions about deer management and hunting. We expect to address deer season prospects and the health of the state's deer herd, including this year's outbreak of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD)."
The video event will stream live on the DNR's Facebook page.
