Default legal atv riding hours deering hunting season

does michigan have hours during the day where you're allowed to ride an atv on the orv trails during hunting season? i know when i lived in minnesota you could only ride before and after dark, and between 11am-2pm.

Yeah, the DNR (all Michigan.gov sites, for that matter) tends to make things as confusing as possible, that way it's easier to give out tickets.

It's been my experience that DNR officers don't know the slightest thing about the laws they are paid to enforce, and will, at any opportunity, make their jobs easier by inventing or refining laws as they see fit.

But yeah, that guy probably had a good idea. I mean, I know deer often make noises like a 4 stroke Honda, so they can be easily confused. (Sarcasm implied)

DEFINITELY wear your bright colors, and if you get something, make sure you tarp it to avoid another hunter shooting at your front rack while your kill is strapped to it.
