MARQUETTE?- Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment officials remind hunters that a special deer hunt will take place soon.

During the youth and 100-percent disabled veteran firearm deer hunting days, the weekend of Sept. 25-26, youth and disabled veterans may harvest one antlered or one antlerless deer statewide.

A firearm or combination deer hunting license is valid for either an antlered or an antlerless deer during this special season.

Veterans must be determined to be 100-percent disabled by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to be eligible to participate.

Youths 10-11 years of age are limited to archery gear or crossbows. Youths 12-13 years of age may use firearms only on private land, including Commercial Forest Land. All youths must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or someone 18 years of age or older designated by a parent or guardian.

All hunters are required to wear hunter orange during these seasons.
