MUCC Update with Roger Calhoun

This update will be a little different I wanted to put one out about places people can learn some of the outdoor skills that can help you enjoy it more. A lot of people have mentors to help them along the way but there are a lot of people who don’t have that. With that being said I am going to talk about some places that can help them find places to go and get this info or hands on training.

Let’s start with Becoming an Outdoors Woman aka BOW this program is for women 18 and up, it’s a nationally known program that’s all hands on and for the most it’s all taught by other women. The main areas are shooting& hunting, fishing and eco-sports such as Kayaking, Camping and Orienteering. Classes are offered both summer and winter and are held in the UP. You choose what classes you want to take and they provide all the equipment for you. They also offer smaller classes throughout the state called Beyond. If you are interested you need to get on their email alert list because the classes fill up really fast. They also have a Scholarship program for those interested. The BOW program is three days long and is held at the Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay Michigan. That’s about 30 miles north of Marquette.

For more information go to the DNR web site ( then go to Education & Safety and scroll down to Programs for All then learn skills and pick Becoming an Outdoors Woman and your there . This is where you can also get on the email alert list.

This one is also for the women it’s a magazine for women that is all hunting and fishing it covers all forms of hunting fishing trapping and has an abundance of information in it. They even have a line of clothing that’s designed for only women. The best part is it’s free and they inform you by email when the next magazine is out .All you need to do is go to ( and register for it.

This next one is for everyone and I can personally attest to its being a very good system of learning outdoors skills taught by people who love the sport of hunting, trapping, fishing and a lot of other outdoor interests. It’s the Carl T Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center it’s located in Cadillac MI and is run by the DNR.I attended clinic’s for Trapping, Bear Hunting and one on Hunting Deer with out Bait . They also do classes on Mushroom Id and gathering and Fly Fishing and Ice Fishing and more. All the info you need to get into these clinics is in the exact same place I gave for Becoming an Outdoors Woman on the DNR web site.

The Clubs Hunter Safety Classes will be starting up again in the coming new year I don’t know when but I am sure they will let you know ,there an awesome team of great men and women who always do an outstanding job and deserve our respect and gratitude for all they do. I also believe that Bob Sifton is going to be starting Beginners Archery back up soon, another great program for all ages to get started in Archery.

Now for news from the December NRC meeting. First up is fisheries order 200.22. The order lowers the Steelhead bag limit from three to one on select rivers from March 15th through May 15th the traditional spawning season.

Fisheries Order 206.22 will allow year around fishing for Walleye on the lower Saginaw River from Center Road down to the mouth. The order becomes in 2023.

That’s all I have for this now.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all !!!!!!!!!!!
