Newaygo County is in southern Michigan. Newaygo County has a land area of 813.20 square miles and a water area of 48.48 square miles. The county is ranked 36th in population for the state of Michigan. Newaygo County’s northern section of the county is dominated by mesic forests of mixed pine and oak on mainly infertile soils, but with some beech maple forests on better soils. In the northern part of the county, there are a few pockets of cropland on better soils.
Around 71% of the county is private land, with the remaining 29% being public land. Both the Manistee National Forest (in the north and center area of the county) and the Bridgeton Township State Game Area (in the south) are all on public land. In the northern part of the county, deer populations are often lower. Deer like to live near the best forage so they tend to concentrate around living near the farmlands, so, the deer population may be at a good overall density.
Deer hunting is a fundamental component of the social fabric of Newaygo County With several organized deer co-ops existing and active with the Wildlife Division. The Muskegon River runs through the southern part of the county, which is characterized by a combination of loamy agricultural farms, rolling hills of oak and maple on sandier soils, and other hardwoods intermingled with riparian corridors. 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 Newaygo County, Michigan.
