    Check out Michigan’s grouse enhanced management sites (GEMS) for premier bird hunting locations. Walking trails give added comfort to those getting out for their first time or those with mobility challenges. GEMS have parking lots with local area information available. In addition, some businesses support GEMS by providing great discounts to hunters. Just show your base license to any participating business to receive their discount.

    Note: Severe thunderstorms and wind events that occurred recently have caused many state forest two tracks and hunter walking trails to be impassable.  Two GEMS locations hit especially hard were the Mark Knee Memorial, and Lame Duck. We are working as quickly as we can to remedy the situation and your patience is appreciated.
