The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today reminded hunters and anglers that 2007 hunting and fishing licenses go on sale March 1. At this time, licenses for the new year will be sold at the same prices they were in 2006, while the DNR and Natural Resources Commission continue to work with the Legislature on a new license fee package.

"Although a few individuals accidentally purchase their licenses before the start of the new season each year, there is some concern that more hunters and anglers are purchasing licenses now, believing they are avoiding any license fee increase that may occur in 2007," said Bill Pemble, Retail Sales Program manager. "However, licenses purchased before March 1 are not valid for the 2007 season."

The 2007 hunting and fishing licenses will be printed on yellow stock, Pemble said. The 2006 licenses were printed on purple stock.

Individuals who accidentally purchased a license after Jan. 1, 2007, thinking they were getting a license for 2007 can get a refund by contacting DNR Customer Systems at (517) 373-1204.

"We wish to remind hunters and anglers that they can get a discount when four or more licenses are purchased at one time for the same person," Pemble said.

Hunters and anglers also can purchase their 2007 licenses online starting March 1 on the DNR Web site at www.michigan.gov/dnr.
