REED CITY - The bow season has been going on since Oct. 1 and now the firearm hunters are getting ready for the opener on Friday.
"The bow season has been good," DNR wildlife biologist Pete Kailing said. "The weather hasn't been the greatest with the rain and wind. Hunters are taking deer. We see a few nice bucks here at the check station and some nice bucks off state land and if there are acorns or beechnuts nearby, the deer are focused there.
