Deer hunting is declining in Michigan. In the late 1990’s, almost 800,000 people were hunting deer in the state. Twenty years later, that number has dropped by around 25 percent.
A new ban on deer baiting is likely to further that trend.
But the Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the ban is necessary for the long-term health of the state’s deer herd.
