The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the firearms deer season is off to a good start, with hunting license sales up 2 percent from the same point a year ago.

The season opened last Thursday and runs through Nov. 30.

The DNR says about 640,000 hunters bought one or more Michigan deer licenses by opening day.

It says most hunters in the Upper Peninsula have been observing more deer this year than last.

The DNR says there appears to be an increase in hunting activity in the northern Lower Peninsula, while southern Michigan hunting may be down because of outbreaks of epizootic hemorrhagic disease during the summer.
