Most Michigan hunters won’t need regular license for antlerless deer this fall
DNR is rolling out a universal antlerless deer license for all seasons
LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) - Michigan is changing hunting license criteria, which will eliminate the need for most hunters to obtain a traditional hunting license for antlerless deer.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says most hunters only need a universal antlerless license to hunt on public or private land in all deer seasons this fall. An access permit only is required to take part in reserved hunts at the Shiawassee River National Wildlife Refuge, Shiawassee River State Game Area and other public land.
Some areas of the Upper Peninsula will require an access permit and universal antlerless license to take deer.
Applications for access permits to reserved hunts can be purchased for $5 from July 15 to Aug. 15. Click here for Michigan’s 2021 Hunting Digest with more information about antlerless deer license changes.
