The local economy is heavily reliant on hunting and other forms of outdoor activity. Recent demographic trends show that the deer population is gradually increasing. This is expected to be primarily due to a series of mild winters since 2013, as well as a slow but steady decline in hunters and hunting effort. Smaller year-to-year variations are visible, although antlerless harvest patterns have been steady, and buck harvest has progressively risen since 2014. Whitetail deer, grouse, bear, ducks, turkey, and geese are among the game species available for hunting along the farm land, vacant land, waterfront, and hunting land for sale by Michigan Whitetail Properties in Crawford County, Michigan.
