My wife Kim and I live on a 16 acre farm in Solon Township in Kent County.
We are trying to get a beef operation going, but make some money with our egg business.
I love to restore old wooden motor boats. (DO YOU HAVE ONE THAT'S BEEN IN A BARN FOR YEARS?)
I love to fly radio control airplanes and the ones with strings that we all had as kids! Anyone have some of those lying around?
My best buck is a rather small eight point, but it is hanging in my office.
My best fish was a King Salmon I fought for 45 minutes on the lake. But it got away.
I grew up in Chicago and remain a dedicated Cubs and Bears fan.
The Department of Natural Resources says applications for doe tag licenses are on sale now.
Hunters should note that private-land licenses for southern Michigan and the northeastern Lower Peninsula (Deer Management Units 486 and 487) may be purchased without an application and are available over-the-counter beginning Monday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m.
Applications are $4. Hunters may apply for just one antlerless license – public land or private land. After the drawing, remaining antlerless licenses may be purchased beginning Monday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. Licenses will be sold until the quotas are met. The season purchase limit for private-land antlerless deer licenses is five statewide, except for DMU 486 and DMU 487, which will have a season limit of 10 licenses.
486 is basically anything in the lower shotgun zone. 487 is the far north east corner of the lower.
