Deer season in the Upper Peninsula, one of Michigan's most cherished hunting traditions, could be canceled this year due to low deer numbers. According to the Detroit Free Press, recent severe winters have devastated the U.P. deer herd. Last year the harvest was down as much as 40 percent, one of the lowest harvests in 30 years. The Michigan DNR has come up with a range of options to present to the Natural Resources Commission on May 7. Canceling the season is on that list.
