Doug Miles is concerned about the deer population around his home.

Doug Miles is concerned about the deer population around his home in the northwest corner of St. Joseph County, Ind.

Miles is an avid deer hunter and landowner. He talks to neighbors, who are farmers and deer hunters.

They’re concerned, too.

“None of us saw bucks and very few does this past season,” said Miles.

That’s not the norm on property that includes several thousand acres covering Miles’ place and adjoining neighbors’. And while a lot of the land is agriculture, the owners are deer hunters and manage the land for quality bucks by maintaining good deer habitat.

When Michiana Boat & Sport Show visitors walk the floor of the South Bend Century Center Jan. 27-29, they will see bigger boats displays, more vendors and a full seminar agenda.

This marks the fifth year of the unique show sponsored by area boat dealers and the Michiana Walleye Association (MWA). Show hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday, 9-9 Saturday and 9-4 Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and free to kids under age 12. It’s $5 to park in the Century lot but free on Sunday.

As always, the walleye club will provide some of the manpower and the proceeds go to the club for fish stocking and youth programs.

The biggest growth is in the boat exhibits as Michiana marinas are expanding their show exposure and newcomers have joined the exhibitor list.

“Although I can probably squeeze in a couple more small booths, we’re pretty well maxed out,” said show promoter Dale Brindley. Last minute exhibitors can call him, 574-286-6311.
