Can someone please explain why timber sales would be encouraged or 
permitted in limited state game areas in Southern Michigan???

What am I missing here??

Is this a timber sale to help meet John Engler's "cut and run" goals
for the state, or is this a timber sale to grow more deer habitat
(low shrubs) so that we can run over more deer on the highway
in Southern Michigan and have those little critters eat more
Round-Up contaminated corn in farmer's fields???
