Lower Peninsula Deer Hunters Seeking Regulation Change
A deer hunting group, The Lower Peninsula Deer Management Initiative (LPDMI) is proposing antler point restrictions that would limit the number of yearling bucks in the annual harvest to 50 percent or less of the total harvest.
Tony Smith, the President of LPDMI said, “The purpose of the proposed regulations is to secure a higher
protection rate of 1.5 year old (yearling) bucks in the annual harvest and advance them to the next age
class.” Currently, 67 percent of antlered bucks harvested in the Southern Lower Peninsula (SLP) are yearlings, 58 percent in the Northern Lower Peninsula (NLP).
Protection of more than 50 percent of yearling bucks would require a 3 point on a side restriction in the
NLP and a 4 point on a side restriction in the SLP.
For more information on the proposal, for meeting dates and locations and to donate to the LPDMI, visit
