Turkey applications available
LANSING – The Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters to check their spring turkey drawing results and the availability of leftover licenses, now online at www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings.
“Hunting in the Upper Peninsula offers great flexibility, where all open areas are included in one hunt unit and licenses are good for the entire April 22 - May 31 season,” said DNR upland game bird specialist Al Stewart.
Hunting licenses can be purchased online at www.mdnr-elicense.com. Hunters may purchase only one spring turkey license in a season.
In 2012, Michigan hunters harvested approximately 31,337 turkeys, making Michigan one of the top six turkey hunting states in the country. In addition, opinion surveys show the majority of hunters were satisfied with their spring turkey hunting experience.
