Tomorrow morning there will be a lunar trifecta: the super blue blood moon.

Mary Stewart Adams of the Headlands International Dark Sky Park in Emmett County joined Stateside today to explain what this rare lunar event is, what Michiganders will be able to see, and when.

Tens of thousands of hunters will soon head into Michigan’s woods for the start of firearm deer season in Michigan. State officials expect a slightly larger deer harvest this year.

Hunters face different challenges in different parts of Michigan: not enough deer in the Upper Peninsula, antler-restrictions in northwest Michigan and chronic-wasting disease in central Michigan.

But Drew Youngedyke, with the Michigan United Conservation Clubs, says the moon may also issue. He says experts predict this week’s brighter than normal moon may change the feeding habits of some deer.
