The Michigan departments of Health and Human Services and Natural Resources are reminding hunters of the ‘Do Not Eat’ advisory for deer taken within 5 miles of Clark’s Marsh in Oscoda Township.

The advisory does not apply to cattle, chickens or other livestock raised in the area. In addition to the Clark’s Marsh deer advisory it is recommended that no one eat organs from any fish or deer in the state.
