Hunting and Gathering Proposed Changes

The Pokagon Band Department of Natural Resources (PBDNR) is proposing to open more tribal properties to hunting and gathering opportunities for tribal citizens. Furthermore, PBDNR is proposing parking areas and designating trails as foot paths or open to vehicles. These parking areas will be utilized during restricted trail access times which are set to occur during turkey and white-tailed deer hunting seasons.

The PBDNR is opening a public comment period for citizens to be able to provide any comments regarding opening more acreage, as proposed in the maps below, to firearm hunting, bow hunting, and gathering. Citizens are encouraged to view the maps below and submit comments. You may also provide comments via e-mail at, phone at (269) 782-9602, or by mail at P.O. Box 180, 58620 Sink Rd, Dowagiac, MI 49047.

The comment period is open from March 19–May 19.
