MDNR Says Earlier Bass Season Good For Michigan
Senate Bill 869 passes Michigan Senate unanimously
At the March 20 Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Committee hearing on SB 869, MDNR Legislative Liaison Trevor VanDyke stated the MDNR fully supports eliminating the existing bass season limits from state law because recent science has proven that some of their concerns are no longer as large and giving flexibility to the NRC to set an earlier season will be good for Michigan.
