Traditional deer wintering sites include the watersheds of Dutchman, Lemon, and Big Bear Creeks, as well as the Manistee and Little Manistee Rivers. Recent demographic trends show that the deer population is gradually rising. Most likely as a result of repeated warm winters and a slow but steady decline in hunters or hunting effort. 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 Manistee County, Michigan.
