GRAYLING – Michigan National Guard Soldiers will be finishing up their weapon qualifications this week and it will begin to quiet down out here at Camp for the first couple of weeks of November. Please respect all closed gates and call our office prior to travelling around any closed gate, even when you feel this may be in error.
For all of my fellow hunters who take part in Michigan’s Rifle Deer Season, we here at Camp Grayling usually do not allow any training to be scheduled for any of our Ranges during the first two weeks of the Whitetail season.
However, the 107th Fighter Squadron of the Michigan Air National guard has been ordered up for an overseas deployment. With this order the 107th Squadron will need to complete some required training out at Range 40 also known as our “Air to Ground” range. The Camp Grayling Commander worked with the 107th squadron leadership to keep Opening day and the weekend (November 15th -18th) quiet, and not have any training begin until Monday, November 19th – 30th.
During this timeframe residents and hunters may see or hear low flying fixed winged aircrafts. Thank you in advance for your understanding as the 107th Fighter squadron prepares for their dangerous upcoming mission overseas.
