Fall turkey application period ends Aug. 1

LANSING — From July 1 through Aug. 1, hunters may apply for one limited-quota license for a specific fall turkey hunt unit and season dates. The application fee is $5.
Applicants selected in the drawing may then purchase a limited-quota license online at or at a license agent. After the drawing, any leftover licenses will be sold until quotas are met.
Depending on how many hunters apply, leftover licenses may or may not be available for some hunt units and/or dates. Hunters, including young hunters licensed under the Mentored Youth Hunting Program, may apply for or purchase a fall turkey license.
Hunters who do not apply for the drawing may purchase a leftover license, if available, beginning Aug. 31.
Drawing results will be available online Aug.17.
Fall turkey season dates are Sept. 15 through Nov. 14.
