Talked to my good hunting buddy in the up of Michigan tonight and the report is not good. They are seeing fair numbers of dead deer already from starvation. With 2 months to go for deep snow things could be really bad. When you add in the high wolf, spring bear kills, coyote and hunter kills the short term hunting may be slim pickings like this past fall was up there in archery season. Time will tell how bad the winter kill becomes.
