Antlerless deer license applications on sale until Aug. 15

(AREA) -- The DNR reminds hunters that the application period for antlerless deer licenses ends Friday, August 15. Hunters may apply for one license in any open Deer Management Unit statewide for a non-refundable $5 fee. Drawing results and leftover license availability may be viewed at www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings beginning September 4. Young hunters, ages 9-16, can also purchase one junior antlerless deer license over the counter through August 15. No application is required. A 9-year-old must be 10 by September 15 to purchase this license. Antlerless deer quotas have been reduced to about 494,000 licenses statewide, down from about 550,000 for 2013. In the Upper Peninsula, licenses are available only in Deer Management Units 122, 055 and 155, and have been eliminated in other Upper Peninsula units due to the last severe winter, which resulted in losses in the deer herd.
