LANSING, Mich. (AP) - In a story Nov. 8 about changes in Michigan target-shooting rules, The Associated Press reported erroneously that target shooting is limited to before 9 a.m. or after 7 p.m. or sunset, whichever is earliest. There is no target shooting before 9 a.m. or after 7 p.m. or sunset, whichever is earliest, or as posted.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Recent rule changes will affect Michigan target-shooters

As deer season approaching the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is reminding hunters that target-shooting rules were recently changtjed for state game and wildlife areas

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - As deer season approaching the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is reminding hunters that target-shooting rules were recently changed for state game and wildlife areas.

Target shooting is often used by hunters to sight in guns before deer season.

Under the rule changes anyone target-shooting cannot shoot at anything other than paper, cardboard or a commercially produced portable target.

In addition, incendiary or explosive targets or ammunition may not be used. The same is true for armor-piercing ammunition.

Also, there is no target shooting before 9 a.m. or after 7 p.m. or sunset, whichever is earliest, or as posted.

Tim Payne is the DNR’s southeast regional wildlife supervisor. He said the changes were made to alleviate problems related to crowding in affected areas, unsafe use of targets and other problems.
