Monday is the beginning of the rifle deer hunting season. This is THE hunting season. I would think by now the deer are pretty freaked out since there has already been a bow-hunting season and a muzzle-loading season. No one will be hunting on my 50 acres and I imagine there may be deer who "know" that the property is a safe haven.
The DNR just lifted the ban in Presque Isle County that prohibited baiting for deer. This is practice of putting out carrots, corn, apples, sugar beets or other treats to attract deer to a particular hunting site. Under the new rules a hunter can only put out two gallons of bait over a 100 square foot area per day. But if the deer don't eat the bait all the bait when it first distributed on subsequent days a hunter can only add bait to maintain the two gallons per 100 square feet density rule. The ban and rules were/are in effect to stem/prevent bovine TB in the deer herd.
The schools in the area are closed on Monday and Tuesday for opening day.
If you are hunting for something else to do this weekend I would suggest seeing "A Dolphin's Tale". Inspirational and heart-warming.
