Be on the lookout for ticks
Though warmer-weather outdoor activities increase the possibility of encountering a tick, there are several easy ways to protect yourself, your loved ones and pets.
Wear long pants, tall socks and light-colored clothing, and applying insect repellent can help ward them off. Stay on well-groomed trails and avoid high grass, brush and fallen leaves. Perform daily tick checks.

DNR asks anglers to share details of muskellunge fishing trips
If you’re fishing for muskellunge this year, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources wants to hear from you. The DNR is asking people who fish for muskie to help with its ongoing efforts to investigate these fish by reporting through the DNR’s online muskellunge angler survey, https://www.research.net/r/MIMuskieSurvey?utm_ campaign=muskie+survey &utm_medium=pr&utm_source=govdelivery. Since 2014, this survey has gathered information about muskie angler demographics and catch data, such as length of fish caught, angler effort, body of water fished and methods used.
Fisheries managers have used this data to recommend fishing regulation changes to the Michigan Natural Resources Commission, evaluate the muskellunge stocking program and understand more about self-sustaining populations.
