Michigan Deer Hunting

Michigan Hunting

Hunters looking for an opportunity to take that whitetail buck, goose, duck or turkey will find no better place to pursue their dream than in the area surrounding Anderson Lake Lodge.  For the past 15+ years, Anderson Lake Lodge has been exclusively rented to one group.  We are able to offer this private 350 acre property with a beautiful northwoods lodge for this Michigan hunting season.

Online Michigan Hunting License Sales

By renting during Michigan deer season, you automatically have hunting rights on the 350 acres.  There are several established box blinds in place on the property and many good locations for tree and ground stands.  The property has all the elements of good hunting:  fields, swamps, cut overs and deep woods.  Plus a woods road accesses the entire property.

Michigan Goose Hunting Season

The lodge accommodates up to 16 guests but we recommend not more than 10 hunters.  In addition to the 350 acres of private land, there are thousands of acres of state, federal and CFR lands available to hunt very close to the lodge.

 This is where the legends about duck and goose hunting were born.  Hunting like you always wished it could be.  From the first flight of mallards to the last huge flock of geese, this prime hunting area has traditionally attracted some of the largest concentrations of waterfowl.

Hunting opportunities abound in Iron County and with liberal harvest quotas and baiting laws, the chance for success is better here than anywhere we know!  Grouse season runs concurrently (lots of birds) and you may hunt waterfowl on the property.


Deer Hunting 
Deer hunters looking for an opportunity to take that whitetail buck will find no better place to pursue their dream than in the area surrounding Anderson Lake Lodge.
Historically Anderson Lake Lodge has been rented exclusively to the same group October 15 through November 30 for 15+ years.  Anderson Lake Lodge is now available for the Michigan Deer hunting season exclusively for $8,000 ($800/hunter based on 10 hunters) if the hunting reservation is made by May 1.  Thereafter, we will rent the property for 2 weeks blocks to ensure limited hunting pressures & reservations will be made for these blocks starting July 1.  During archery season Oct 1 - Nov 15, the rate is $2,400 for two weeks.  One week blocks are available for rifle season, Nov 15-Nov 22 ($4,000) and Nov. 23-Nov 30 ($2,500).  All of rifle season is available for $6,000.
Two buck licenses are available to hunters, subject to quality deer management rules.  Over the counter anterless tags will be available (first come, first serve) September 17.

Bow Hunting:  Nothing can describe the sensation of having a trophy buck pass by your stand, so close you can see the steam coming from its nostrils!  Only a bow hunter can appreciate the peaceful serenity of the woods in early fall, as deer continue to move freely, yet unaffected by man's presence.  The successful bow hunter requires knowledge of the deer's natural movement and habits.

Rifle Season:  Traditionally looked forward to as much as any holiday!  Michigan's liberal harvest quotas allow hunters to purchase a second license to take an additional deer.

Muzzle Loading Season - Muzzle loaders have a special 10 day season in Michigan following the traditional gun deer season.  Good snow cover in early December provides excellent tracking and vision in the woods, increasing the hunters' chances for success during this special season.

Additional information on Michigan Hunting is available at the Michigan DNR website www.michigan.gov/dnr.

Michigan Hunting Spring & Fall Turkey Hunting

Iron County offers hunters spring & fall Michigan Turkey Hunts.
The turkey’s ability to evade hunters far exceeds what they appear to be capable of. Most hunters have a challenge on their hands when it comes to outsmarting a big tom. No matter how many birds there are, shooting one is more than a matter of luck.  “Calling is essential,” said Tim Payne, a Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist in the Southeast Management Unit. “You’re trying to call a tom away from other hens, so try to sound like a lonely female looking for a friend.”  You can hunt on Anderson Lake Lodge property or our state has plenty of public land on which to shoot a gobbler.  “We have well over 48,000 square miles of public lands in Michigan, and you can hunt turkeys on just about all of them,” said Michigan DNR upland game specialist Al Stewart. “Statewide, the turkey population is looking pretty good, and they’re spread out fairly evenly."
