2019 DNR licenses go on sale March 1
LANSING — Don’t wait to get your 2019 hunting or fishing license. Most licenses and permits go on sale March 1, when the new license year begins.
The March 1 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 2020 Pure Michigan Hunt also go on sale that day.
Remember that 2018 fishing licenses, base/small-game licenses and ORV permits are valid through March 31, 2019. However, the 2019 versions of these licenses and permits can be purchased as of March 1.
Order online at MDNR-eLicense.com 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 will be posted as they become available.
