There’s plenty of snow in the Upper and Lower Northern Peninsulas this weekend to get some snowmobiling in. With two more days of firearm gun season, it’s necessary to observe state-mandated quiet hours and don’t drive on trails over private land.
Quiet hours in the Michigan woods during deer hunting season are from 7 am to 11 am, and 2 pm until 5 pm during firearm deer season and continue for the next two days. The weather will be warmer this weekend, so you’ll want to take advantage of that and spend time outdoors. Unless there is an emergency, keep the woods quiet so hunters who haven’t got their deer yet can get one. Hunters who need to use snowmobiles to get to deer camp are allowed to do so, as long as they observe hunting quiet hours.
State trails that go over private land are still closed until December 1. After that, the trails are open until March 31. For more information, trail maps and reports, visit the DNR website.
