2002 FISHING LICENSES GO ON SALE MARCH 1|
LANSING--Anglers can purchase their 2002 Michigan fishing
licenses starting Friday, March 1, at more than 1,700
license dealers and Michigan Department of Natural Resources
2001 licenses remain valid until April 1, 2002, and anglers
should note that 2001 fishing regulations remain in effect
through March 31. Any 2002 Michigan fishing license (except
the 24-hour license) purchased between March 1-31 is valid
for fishing during this period, including the April 1, 2002
to March 31, 2003 license year.
For added convenience and faster service, anglers can
purchase fishing licenses via the Internet at
www.michigandnr.com. By clicking the "e-license" link on the
DNR Web site, anglers can purchase their fishing licenses 24
hours a day, seven days a week. Online customers may use
Mastercard or Visa to charge their purchase, and they will
be able to print out licenses from their personal computer.
More than 16,000 anglers purchased fishing licenses online
in 2001, the first year this option was available, and DNR
officials expect these numbers to grow as more anglers and
hunters become aware of the advantages the system offers.
"E-license is especially helpful to nonresident anglers who
previously had to wait until they arrived in Michigan to
purchase their license," said Loren Hersey, DNR E-Commerce
Manager. "They now can have their license in the fishing
vest pocket or wallet before they leave home."
The e-license system also provides customers access to more
DNR information than could be provided at license dealer
locations, and it allows users to access a Frequently Asked
