      Improving game population

      The Upper Peninsula Sportsmen's Association is reviewing the status of the game population in the U.P. and how to improve it. Saturday the UPSA held a meeting in Escanaba to get input from the public on what they have found out.

      The meeting showcased how the game population has changed since 1960.

      Involving the public can give them more information that can complement what they already have.

      "We actually believe and see that our game species are going down and there's numerous reasons. We're predicting five reasons; it's not just winter," said Rory Mattson of the UPSA.

      The group wants to take action soon so that the population doesn't continue to decrease. It is expected to be a long process before results are seen.
