LANSING, MI. (WLNS) -The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has approved $100,000 in grants for projects to improve conditions for deer in the Upper Peninsula.

The DNR chose 12 projects through a competitive process in an effort to improve deer habitats on lands not owned by the state.

This is the eighth year for the Deer Habitat Improvement Partnership Initiative which is funded by the sale of hunting licenses.

The winning grants were chosen by a six member panel which looked at criteria like accessibility to the public, cost sharing and the likelihood of results.

Half of this year’s winners were conservation districts and at least two others involve the creation of sporting groups.
