It's the one day of the year you can hear the sunrise in Michigan. Firearm deer hunting season starts at sunrise Thursday.
The season runs from Nov. 15-30. Some hunters are worried about the combination of warm conditions and too few deer. Last year about 675,000 hunters scoured the woods across the state.
Deer hunters would like a little tracking snow, and up north they may find some. The DNR will have special check-stations to check the deer for disease. It's a big deal for hunters and for others as well. Schools, especially in northern Michigan should see a drop in attendance tomorrow.
Some students get " pre-excused" for deer hunting. And shoppers love this time of year, too. Birch Run Premium outlets, for example cater to "deer widows" with special deals.
