Fall turkey hunting licenses
From July 1 – Aug. 1, you can apply for one limited-quota license valid for a specific fall turkey hunt unit during specific season dates. You must be at least 10 years old or have a mentored youth hunting license to apply.
There is no guarantee that leftover licenses will be available for any hunt unit. If you applied for the drawing, were unsuccessful and have your base license, you may purchase a leftover turkey license from any license agent, online or through the Michigan DNR Hunt Fish app, on a first-come, first-served basis for a one-week period beginning Aug. 21 at 10 a.m. EST. If you did not apply for the drawing, you may purchase any limited-quota licenses that remain as of Aug. 28 at 10 a.m. EST if you have a current base license. You may purchase one license a day until quotas are met.
