Men and women from all over Michigan gathered for "Camo at the Capitol" Wednesday to show support for hunting, fishing and trapping in the Great Lakes State. Issues from "keeping public lands in public hands" and implementing stiffer fines for poachers were just a few of the topics discussed with lawmakers.

Members of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs as well as MI DNR Director Keith Creagh were also on hand at the event.
