I went to the township meeting with a group that hunts Lake Mac. There was good hunter participation and a lot of camo in the room. A retired DNR officer spoke against the proposal citing that in his 20 some years of monitoring the lake he had only given one citation. That was for a loaded firearm in a boat. Also mentioned was that there have been no hunting related accidents on the lake and many spoke as to the very limited time that hunting actually occurs.

The aforementioned sailboater spoke. He voiced his fear of being shot by duck hunters on Chip point while sailing down the channel connecting Big Bay to the main lake. Others also had saftey concerns. Others simply voiced anti-hunting sentiment.
