Hunting and fishing now free for military

LANSING – Active-duty military members who enlisted as Michigan residents and have maintained residence status can now obtain annual Michigan fishing or hunting licenses free of charge, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources

To qualify, persons must be active-duty U.S. military members and, at the time of enlistment, must have been residents of Michigan and must have maintained residence status for the purposes of obtaining a driver’s license or voting.

These individuals may receive, free of charge, a resident military all-species fishing license or any hunting license for which a lottery is not required.
