It's the day deer hunters have been waiting for, the start of firearm deer season.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources' Rose Lake Wildlife Research Center was swarming with hunters checking in their deer while staff aged the deer and recorded the health of the herd.
Wildlife Disease Lab Tech Kristine Brown spent her one day out of the lab checking tooth wear, measuring antlers and recording data. Brown will head back to the lab Wednesday to analyze the information. Brown will test for Bovine Tuberculosis, Chronic Wasting Disease and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
Two Michigan State University students were also on hand. They checked the deer for ticks as part of a study on Lyme disease.
