LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has moved up when deer hunters can place ground blinds on public land.
The department announced Friday that the blinds can be placed starting on Sept. 1. Previously, hunters had to wait until Nov. 5.
Officials say the rule now is consistent with those for placing raised platforms, or tree stands.
The change was adopted last month at a Natural Resources Commission meeting.
