2020 hunting and fishing licenses go on sale Sunday
LANSING— Don’t wait to get your 2020 hunting or fishing license – most licenses and permits go on sale March 1, when the new license year begins.
That start date includes hunting and fishing license sales, except for certain deer licenses and furbearer tags that are sold later in the year.
Applications for the 2021 Pure Michigan Hunt also go on sale that day.
Remember that 2019 fishing licenses, base/small-game licenses and ORV permits are valid through March 31, 2020. However, the 2020 versions of these licenses and permits can be purchased as of March 1.
With the DNR’s just-introduced new license sales system, anglers have the added convenience of auto-renewing their fishing licenses through the e-license system.
Order online at Michigan.gov/DNRLicenses or visit any Michigan retailer that sells DNR licenses. Kill tags and trail permits ordered online are mailed to customers and usually arrive in seven to 10 days. Check the DNR website for the latest season guides and digests, which are posted as they become available.
