Spring turkey drawing results to be posted March 1|
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced the results of the 2004 spring turkey license drawing will be posted on the DNR web site, beginning Mar. 1.
Drawing results and leftover license quantities will be available at www.michigan.gov/dnr. Applicants who did not apply online will receive a notification postcard.
Beginning Mar. 8, at 10 a.m. (EDT), unsuccessful spring turkey applicants may purchase one leftover license, in person, on a first-come, first-served basis from any authorized Michigan hunting license agent until the quota is met.
There are 42,021 leftover limited-quota licenses available, with more than 35,000 licenses available for Hunt Number 301, Unit ZZ. Rather than purchase one of these leftover licenses, unsuccessful applicants may purchase a license for Hunt Number 234, May 3-31, which includes all areas open to spring turkey hunting except public land in southern Michigan Hunt Unit ZZ.
This year, over 140,000 hunters applied for the spring wild turkey hunting season that runs from Apr. 19 through May 31 with various hunting periods ranging in length from seven to 29 days. More than 44,500 square miles are open to hunting, and a total of 111,720 licenses were available through the lottery.
Those who are unable to determine their drawing information by Mar. 5 should call 517‑373‑3904 for assistance from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
