LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Southeast Michigan hunters are reaping the benefits of a partnership between the Department of Natural Resources and the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.

DNR officials say in a release that a plan approved this summer allows waterfowl hunters to utilize some of the marsh on the 6,000-acre refuge established in 2001. The refuge includes uplands, marsh, islands and undeveloped riverfront about 20 miles south of Detroit.

The three managed waterfowl hunting zones have been open to the public this season.

DNR wildlife supervisor Joe Robison says "it's a win-win situation" that's economical and provides additional public hunting opportunities in southeast Michigan, "where there are a lot of people and limited public land."
