Dont Forget to Apply for Antlerless Deer Licenses

The antlerless deer license application period runs through August 15.

Some areas of the state have a limited number of antlerless deer license applications available, making applying for that deer management unit important for some. Private-land applications do require a landowner phone number, so have it ready!

Private-land applications are not needed for chronic wasting disease (CWD) areas, such as DMU 033, 041 and 062. These licenses will be available without application beginning September 10 at 10:00 a.m. See antlerless deer license quotas for the complete list of CWD areas.

Young hunters, 16 and under, can buy antlerless deer licenses over the counter through August 15.

Any leftover licenses that remain will go on sale September 10 at 10:00 a.m.

For more details about antlerless deer hunting and to buy an application online, visit michigan.gov /deer.

Please note: To allow more time for public comment on CWD before regulations are decided, the Natural Resources Commission is scheduled to finalize regulations in August. Updated early/late season antlerless maps will be posted after August 9.
