Commercial Forest (CF) Lands used for Hunting & Trapping
Michigan has over 2 million acres of privately owned forests enrolled in the CF program for hunters and trappers to access by foot. Most landowners do not allow motorized vehicles on their land. Some of the Commercial Forest (CF) Lands are fenced or gated but are open to hunters and trappers. Hunters must have a license which is valid for private land hunting. There are some restrictions:
No leaving anything unattended including hunting blinds
No damaging or injuring any vegetation and trees with nailing or cutting
The Michigan DNR has two great web pages to answer questions on Commercial Forest (CF) Lands, mi.gov/commercialforest and mi.gov/mihunt.
If you are looking to own a home, small camp or land in the South West Region of Michigan to enjoy hunting please Contact Valerie.
