According to, opening day deer numbers were down just a bit - but the DNR expected that with a Tuesday opener. I saw several does, but it wasn't until later in the morning that I saw them. I blame the Supermoon.

Here's the story - with photos from the Plainwell (north of Kalamazoo) and Eagle DNR check stations. They had some nice deer show up at both places.

Congratulations to everybody who scored and good luck to everybody still trying.
