Nofs200x300LANSING, Mich. — With the start of the regular firearm hunting season approaching, Sen. Mike Nofs, R-Battle Creek, announced that he has several resources for hunters on his Senate website.

The 2015 Michigan Hunting Update can be found on the homepage of Nofs’ website, www.SenatorMikeNofs.com, and informs the public about regulation changes, license news and deer and turkey hunting information.

“I am committed to protecting our hunting rights and heritage,” Nofs said. “Sportsmen all over the state enjoy our bountiful resources and rich hunting tradition. In fact, Michigan’s hunting participation rate ranks third in the nation!”

In 2014, an estimated 614,593 hunters spent more than 8 million days afield. Those hunters harvested about 329,000 deer — more deer than was harvested in any other Midwest state. Hunting in Michigan contributes $2.3 billion to Michigan’s economy.
