Elk Hunt Application Period Begins June 15- Michigan
Hunting- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters that they may apply for a 2005 elk hunting license from June 15 through July 15. The 2005 elk hunting seasons include the traditional Dec. 6-13 hunt, which is on both public and private lands in several northern Michigan counties, and a new hunt period during Aug. 27-31 and Sept. 9-12. This early hunt is for elk outside the traditional elk range. A third hunting period may be considered after the December hunt.
Only Michigan residents are eligible to apply. Youth age 13 may apply as long as they turn 14 prior to Aug. 27. Hunters may apply online, at any authorized license agent or at a DNR Operations Service Center. A nonrefundable $4 fee must be paid at the time of application.
A new weighted random lottery will be instituted for 2005. This lottery system will provide applicants who applied for an elk license in the past two years to have one additional chance for each year they applied.
Applicants may call (517) 373-3904 prior to July 15 for assistance with their elk application. Drawing results will be posted July 27 at 10 a.m. EDT on the DNR Web site. See the 2005 Michigan Elk Hunting Guide for more details about the application process and the weighted lottery.
The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
