The Michigan Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters that July 1 through Aug. 1 is the application period for a public land antlerless deer license for the 2004 deer hunting season.
Hunters may apply online at or at any authorized license agent. There is a $4, nonrefundable application fee. Drawing results will be available Sept. 9, on the DNR website. Successful applicants who did not apply online will receive postcard notification, mailed by Sept. 11. All others should check drawing results online after Sept. 9.
Public land antlerless licenses are only available through the drawing process. Beginning Sept. 27 at 10 a.m., leftover public land licenses for Deer Management Units 001, 004, 020, 060, 068, 069, 071, and 452 will be available over the counter at any authorized license agent. No other DMUs will have leftover public land licenses available.
Private land antlerless licenses will be available over the counter beginning Aug. 2 at 10 a.m. There is no minimum acreage requirement or the need for a tax ID number to purchase a private land antlerless license. Hunters may purchase one antlerless license per day until the DMU quota is filled. There is no limit to the number of private land antlerless licenses an individual hunter may purchase.
Hunters ages 12 to 16 may purchase one antlerless license over the counter (public or private) July 1 through Aug. 1.
No application fee or drawing is required. A youth must appear in person with a parent or guardian to purchase a Junior Antlerless Deer Hunting License.
