LANSING, Mich. (WZZM) - A Michigan lawmaker wants to change the annual opening of firearm deer hunting season to have it begin on a weekend.
State representative Kevin Cotter, a Republican from Mount Pleasant proposes the date change in a bill introduced last week.
Currently, firearm deer season begins each year on November 15. But under Cotter's bill, it would begin on the second or third Saturday in November, closest to November 15.
That would allow three weekends of hunting, Instead of the usual two.
