Elk Hunt Applications Due July 15th
State Department of Natural Resources today reminded hunters that applications for a Michigan elk hunting license are available from June 15 to July 15.
The 2003 elk hunting season is Dec. 9-16, on both public and private lands, in several northern Michigan counties. A second hunting period in January will be considered after the December hunt, based on harvest and hunters’ field observations.
Only Michigan residents are eligible to apply. Hunters must be 14 years or older to hunt elk in Michigan, but youth hunters can apply prior to age 14 as long as they will be 14 by the end of the December hunt period. Hunters can apply online or at any authorized license agent. A nonrefundable $4 fee is charged at the time of application.
Applicants may check the drawing results on line beginning Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. See the 2003 Michigan Elk Hunting Guide for more details about the application process.
