Fall turkey leftover licenses available in September|
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced there will be leftover licenses available in September for the fall turkey season.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m. (EDT), unsuccessful fall turkey applicants may purchase one leftover license in person on a first-come, first-served basis for a one-week period at any authorized license dealer. Any licenses that remain as of Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. (EDT) may be purchased over-the-counter by individuals who did not apply for a fall wild turkey license. These licenses will be sold until the quota is met.
This year, 12,639 leftover limited-quota licenses are available. The complete list of leftover licenses is located on the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/dnr. Last year, 17,836 fall wild turkey hunters harvested 5,450 turkeys. See the 2003 Fall Wild Turkey Hunting Guide for all hunt numbers, dates, and regulations pertaining to the fall season.
