LANSING—Though the weather is decidedly wintry, spring is coming and with it the turkey hunting season.
The DNR reminds hunters to check their spring turkey drawing results and the availability of leftover licenses, now online at www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings.
Leftover spring turkey licenses went on sale to unsuccessful license applicants at 10 a.m. Monday, March 10.
Licenses are on sale to all other hunters, including those who did not participate in the application process, as of 10 a.m. Monday, March 17. Leftover licenses will be sold until quotas are met.
Hunting licenses can be purchased online at www.mdnr-elicense.com.
Hunters may purchase only one spring turkey license in a season.
In 2013, Michigan hunters harvested more than 30,000 turkeys, making Michigan one of the top seven turkey-hunting states in the country.
In addition, opinion surveys show the majority of hunters were satisfied with their spring turkey hunting experience.
