GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Hunting wildlife has long been ingrained in Michigan's culture, but it is currently on a decline across the state.
The decline is partly due to more baby boomers aging out. Young adults, urbanites and others are also far less likely to participate in hunting.
Michigan had as many as 1.2 million hunters in the 1970s, '80s and into the '90s. But by 2018, less than 675,000 people had at least one hunting license in the state.
