 Greenwoods Outfitting is a family owned and operated business located in the heart of the game-rich Menominee County, Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our area is best known for it's high concentration of whitetail deer, black bear, turkey, pheasant, and waterfowl (geese and ducks). Deer hunting is the foundation for Greenwoods Outfitting. We have high numbers of deer and high success rates. Add this to our accommodations, friendly atmosphere, and beautiful surroundings and you have the makings for a exciting adventure! One thing is certain. You will see a lot of deer here. Our deer concentration runs from 50 to 100 deer per square mile--that is a lot. Regardless of whether you book a muzzleloader, archery, or rifle hunt, nearly everyone has opportunities. Almost everyone gets at a shot opportunity with at least one antlered buck, usually many. A hunter could set a standard of an 8 pointer with a 14 to 16 inch spread, and have at least a 50% opportunity at a deer like that. Here in Michigan you must apply for a bear tag. Michigan has a preference point system for the bear draw. If you want to hunt, you need to begin building up points. Although it's possible to get one in your first year, it will usually take you three or more years to draw a tag. As a result of the limited tags, my farms receive very little bear hunting pressure, so the bears tend to run larger and more numerous than on areas receiving more pressure. You should have 100% opportunity on our bear hunts. We exclusively hunt over active baits, usually in close proximity to the cornfields the bears are in route to. You can harvest your bear with either bow or gun.

Michigan Hunting Outfitters and Guides Elk Facts

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources conducts elk population surveys every other year, and issues enough elk hunting licenses to reduce the winter herd to 800-900 animals. Successful applicants must attend a half-day training session near the elk hunt area on the day before their scheduled hunt. The location of the sessions will be provided to successful applicants. The training session will cover hunter safety, elk behavior, marksmanship, carcass handling, hunting rules and regulations, hunting tips and recommended hunt locations. Following the session, hunters will be issued their licenses, along with materials and information to help their efforts afield. Hunting for Michigan elk is becoming increasingly challenging. There are fewer elk, and they are becoming more wary. Temperatures range from -20 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Many people walk for long periods over multiple days before having an opportunity to take an elk. Once taken, moving an animal roughly four times the size of a white-tailed deer can be difficult. Preseason scouting is important, as is good marksmanship and knowledge of the animal. Preparation for the hunt will increase the enjoyment of the elk hunting experience.


Michigan Hunting Outfitters and Guides Deer Facts

White-tailed deer are the smallest of the three members of the deer family found in Michigan, the others being elk and moose.  They range throughout Michigan and are a game animal in this state. As a species, the extend from the southern edge of the arctic prairies in Canada, all the way to the northern bank of the Amazon River. "White-tailed" refers to the distinctive white tail that when raised is a flag and provides a flash of white, signaling other deer when there is danger. Deer are graceful and swift runners (up to 35 miles per hour), but do not generally run long distances, preferring to seek the nearest shelter whenever possible. Male deer are called "bucks", females "does" and baby deer "fawns". These deer tend to live in female-led family groups of up to 25 deer and may live to ten years or more. Their size ranges between 125 to 225 pounds, although really healthy bucks may be even larger. Their coat is a reddish-brown color in the summer, but becomes much more gray in the winter.  This change helps to hide them as the colors of their environment change.  Their tubular or hollow hairs provide insulation, allowing them to lie on snow without melting it, as well as creating enough buoyancy for swimming. For the first few weeks of a white-tailed deer fawn's life, its mother will "cache" it in a secluded glade when she heads out to forage and then will return periodically to nurse the fawn. A fawn's spots help to hide it from predators. The spots fade in the fall, when the fawn is three months old. Deer have been a valuable resource in Michigan since the first Native Americans began to hunt them. Prior to European settlement, Michigan had an abundant deer herd in the south. The mixture of hardwoods, wetlands, bogs and forest openings was perfect for deer. There were few deer in the virgin forests of the north, which were inhabited mostly by elk and moose. The mature trees were so dense that sunlight could not reach the forest floor and therefore little deer food was available. As farmers and settlers moved into southern Michigan, deer were exterminated by removal of cover and by unregulated shooting - deer were mostly gone by 1870. Logging of forests in the north produced an opposite effect--more openings, brush, and young forests - the northern herd climbed to estimated 1 million deer in the 1880s. As railroads were developed and provided access into the wilderness, market hunters slaughtered hundreds of thousands of deer. Early measures to control market hunting were not very successful, but finally in 1895 a law, which really marked the beginning of deer management in Michigan, established a deer hunting season and limited the number of deer that could be harvested.

Michigan Hunting Outfitters and Guides Bear Facts

n Michigan, most black bear have black or extremely dark brown fur. Other color variations, including brown, cinnamon, grayish-blue and blonde, are found mostly in western North America. Average adult black bear stand less than three feet tall at the shoulder when on all fours and are approximately three to five feet in length. Males are typically larger than females. Adult female black bear weigh approximately 90 to 300 pounds, and adult males weigh about 130 to 500 pounds. Black bear are solitary animals, with the exception of females accompanied by cubs or yearlings and during the breeding season, when mature males and females can be seen together. In Michigan, bear typically enter their den by December and come out in late March or April. Bears are not true hibernators because they only drop their body temperature by a few degrees, whereas a hibernating animal's body temperature is almost the same as its surroundings. Bear are easily awakened and capable of fleeing immediately if they feel threatened during their denning period. Dens may be excavated or constructed as ground nests. Bears also will den in rock cavities, root masses, standing trees, openings under fallen trees, and brush piles. Generally, female black bear are sexually mature at three to five years of age, yet are known to breed at two years of age in the Northern Lower Peninsula. Males are sexually mature at two years of age but typically do not participate in breeding until four to five years of age. Cubs are born helpless and hairless, typically in January, while females are in the den. Cubs weigh 10 to 16 ounces at birth, but because of high fat content in their mother's milk, they grow quickly. By the end of their first summer, cubs typically weigh 50 to 60 pounds. Cubs stay with their mother for about a year and a half, denning together the winter after birth and separating in late May the following spring. Adult females typically breed every other year.Life Span of Black bear are relatively long-lived. In Michigan, black bear have been known to live to be over 30 years of age. Most recorded deaths in Michigan are from hunting or vehicle collisions. Black bear shift activity patterns seasonally in response to the availability of food. The area that a bear occupies seasonally or annually is referred to as its "home-range." The size of home-ranges typically varies by the sex and the age of the bear. Females with newborn cubs have smaller home-ranges that gradually increase as cubs mature, and males' home-ranges are generally larger than females'. Females in the northern Lower Peninsula have an average home-range size of about 50 square miles, and males have an average home-range size of about 335 square miles. Home-ranges of female bears generally overlap, but overlap of mature male home-ranges is less common. Feeding Black bear are most active at dusk and dawn. Black bear are omnivorous and opportunistic feeders, using both plant and animal matter. In early spring, bear frequent wetlands, feeding on plants such as skunk cabbage, sedges, grasses and squawroot. Fruits and berries are important during summer and fall, including blueberry, elderberry, blackberry, juneberry, pokeberry, wild grapes, chokecherry, black cherry, dogwood and hawthorn. Hard mast from oaks, beech, hickory and hazelnut become important in the fall as bears accumulate significant fat reserves for the winter. Bears feed heavily in the fall and can gain as much as one to two pounds per day. The majority of animal matter consumed by bears includes colonial insects and larvae such as ants, bees, beetles and other insects. However, bear are opportunistic feeders, and they are capable of preying on most small- to medium-sized animals including mice, squirrels, woodchucks, beaver, amphibians and reptiles. Under certain conditions bears may actively hunt for newborn white-tailed deer fawns. When available, bear also feed on carrion.

 


Michigan Hunting Outfitters and Guides Turkey Facts

Michigan has a healthy turkey population of more than 200,000 birds — one of the largest turkey populations in the country. With a healthy population of turkey, hunters can expect to have plenty of opportunities to bag a bird this spring, as long as the weather cooperates. Michigan is the eastern wild turkey, which is the most widely abundant turkey subspecies found in the United States. Turkey can suffer heart attacks and this was demonstrated When the Air Force was conducting tests breaking the sound barrier; fields of turkey would drop dead. Turkey are also a fast bird, both on land and in the air; a spooked turkey can run 20 miles per hour and fly 55 mph. Besides being fast, turkey have excellent sight and are able to spot movement a hundred yards away. There field of vision is 270 degrees and they see in color, which is one reason they don’t see well at night. They also have a loud voice and can be heard a mile away. Contrary to what most of us were taught in school, turkey probably was not the main course at the pilgrims' first Thanksgiving dinner in 1621. Venison and lobster were the prime dishes but turkey was a mainstay of the early colonists' diet. When the first settlers arrived to America there were about 10 million wild turkey. It was not always that way and by 1900 the Turkey was almost completely wiped out due to loss of habitat and over harvesting.
