Deer Hunting: Hunting Hours

Below is a map of hunting hour time zones. Actual legal hunting hours (one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset) for Time Zone A are listed in the Hunting Hours Table.

To determine the opening (a.m.) and closing (p.m.) time for any day in another time zone, add the minutes shown below to the times listed in the Time Zone A Hunting Hours Table.

The hunting hour listed in the table reflects Eastern Standard Time, with an adjustment for daylight-saving time. If you are hunting in Gogebic, Iron, Dickinson or Menominee counties (Central Standard Time), you must make an additional adjustment to the printed time by subtracting one hour.
