Hunter self-registration begins at waterfowl areas

PINCONNING, Mich. (AP) - Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas in Michigan are shifting to hunter self-registration for the remainder of the duck-hunting season. The state Department of Natural Resources made the announcement recently, saying the switch was being made from managed draws. Cold temperatures and widespread freezing in the area have resulted in fewer birds and low hunter turnout. That prompted managers to move to the self-registration system. Nayanquing Point Wildlife Area in Pinconning is one that already has begun self-registration. Instead of participating in a drawing each morning or afternoon, hunters will select zones on a first-come, first-served basis. A self-registration kiosk is set up outside the MWHA office. Self-registration is expected to continue until the end of the regular season on Sunday.
