Beaver Island Wildlife Club News

The Beaver Island Wildlife Club met on April 10th to discuss several of its ongoing projects. The main area of discussion centered on the upcoming two-day Island visit by DNR regional wildlife biologist Brian Mastenbrook, who will be working with our Club to help assess several key wildlife management issues. These will include White-tailed Deer population management, Habitat Improvement, Doe Permit levels, and issues relating to Coyotes, Turkeys, Rabbits and other wildlife species. We will be announcing a place for our May 1st meeting with Mr. Mastenbrook. We hope to have a good turnout for this meeting to help improve the wildlife management on Beaver Island.

Other issues that the Club is working on are the “Successful Hunter Contest” (which will help us in our estimates of deer population on Beaver Island) and the Walleye Stocking Pond that we hope to utilize this spring to improve the developing walleye fishery in Lake Geneserath. Additionally the Club discussed the plans for the now Annual Rifle Raffle, which will occur at the Wildlife Club Dinner at the beginning of firearm deer season.
