State wildlife policymakers are considering new regulations intended to stop the spread of deadly chronic wasting disease among Michigan's deer.
The Department of Natural Resources presented its recommendations Thursday to the Natural Resources Commission, an appointed panel that sets hunting rules.
The commission is expected to act on the proposals at a later meeting, perhaps in July or August.
Members listened to public comments Thursday.
Deer carrying the disease have been found in Clinton, Ingham, Ionia, Kent and Montcalm counties.
