I live just south of Flint and there is not much of a hunting opportunity in the area, the public land is generally over run from September thru December and the private land is tied up by guys that have been using it for years. I generally travel north and you can find some good hunting areas around Houghton lake for tree rats and birds. I have even hunted deer and bear up there and if you do your homework you can find them. I am lucky enough to have friends in the area that do not hunt but keep me informed of the "talk" and the good areas.
