Gun Season

By West Michigan Defense Team

Once again it is that time of year in Michigan. November 15 marks the opening date for firearms deer hunting in Michigan. While this is a boon for the Michigan economy, it can also bring about an uptick in arrests related to firearms as well as DNR violations. Some of the typical charges that are prevalent during hunting season are Improper transport of a firearm, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, felon in possession of a firearm, as well as various other criminal acts related directly to act of hunting itself.

Firearm hunting takes place all over the state of Michigan and law enforcement is on heightened alert to keep an eye out for potential firearm violations. If found to be in violation of Michigan firearm laws or to be breaking other Michigan laws related to hunting, it is important to have an attorney knowledgeable in Michigan firearm laws.

In addition to firearm and hunting violations, deer camp can also lead to other types of legal problems stemming from the activities that typically come with deer camp.
