Pure Michigan Hunt applications: now through Dec. 31

You could win a prize package valued at over $4,000, including licenses for elk, bear, spring and fall turkey, antlerless deer and first pick at a Managed Waterfowl Hunt Area. Each $5 application helps fund Michigan's wildlife habitat restoration and management. Learn more at michigan.gov/pmh.

Discounted Antlerless Tags In CWD Management Zone

Hunters have the option of purchasing discounted antlerless licenses at 40% off the usual price. These licenses are good for private land within the CWD Management Zone through November 4, 2018, when they expire. In addition to these discounted licenses, hunters can still purchase regular, over-the-counter antlerless deer tags.

License application reminders by text

Text "MIDNR HUNTAPP" to "64468" to start receiving hunt application reminders via text message. You’ll get a text reminder the day they go on sale, midway through the application period and on the last day they're available. You’ll also get a text when the results have been posted.

Keep on fishing

Don't forget, the 2018 Michigan fishing license is valid through March 31, 2019, so there's still plenty of time to enjoy your purchase! Learn more at michigan.gov/fishing.
