Kent County is in southern Michigan. Kent County has a land area of 846.95 square miles and a water area of 25.00 square miles. Kent County is relatively big geographically (862 sq mi) and contains a variety of deer-friendly habitats. Large areas of orchard land dominate parts of Kent County, while the east side of the county features a mixture of farm fields and smaller woodlots. Throughout Kent County, major stream floodplains (the Grand, Rogue, Thornapple, and Flat Rivers) provide additional wildlife habitat and travel corridors.
The city of Grand Rapids and its surrounding suburbs form the state’s second biggest metropolitan region and dominate the county’s southwest portion. The majority of accessible deer range (96%) is privately owned, although the Rogue River, Cannonsburg, and sections of the Lowell-Saranac State Game Areas offer a mix of upland forest and wetland corridors to be publically hunt. In Kent County, the deer population has likely stayed fairly steady to slightly increased in past years.
Unlimited private land antlerless license quotas and generous buck hunting regulations have been the key population management strategies. 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 Kent County, Michigan.
