Elk NetworkMichigan Seeks Landowners to Assist with Wildlife Management

General | July 23, 2018

Do you live in Michigan? Are you a landowner? Do you want to help prevent the spread of wildlife disease? If so, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wants to talk to you.

“We are targeting counties that have these diseases, either in their counties or in that surrounding area, to help hunters be able to access deer on private land,” Katie Keen, DNR wildlife communications coordinator, told WWTV/WWUP-TV.

Specifically, the DNR is recruiting landowners who own more than 40 acres of land in the northeast portion of the state. Participants can make some money while also helping wildlife officials manage the deer population.
