Leftover bear hunting licenses for 2010 season will be available for purchase in July, according to the Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

Two bear hunts - the third hunt in the Bergland Unit and the third hunt in the Carney Unit -- were under-subscribed, resulting in 569 leftover licenses. These licenses will be sold online or at any license agent on a first-come, first-served basis according to the following criteria:

-- Holders of Lifetime Comprehensive Licenses may purchase a leftover license beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, July, 12;
-- Unsuccessful applicants may purchase a leftover license beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, July 19; and
-- Any hunter may purchase a leftover license beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, July 26, including those who did not apply

Hunters are reminded that their preference points will reset to zero if they purchase a leftover license, except for Lifetime Comprehensive License holders

Results of the drawing for 2010 bear hunting licenses have been posted on the Department of Natural Resources and Environment's website at www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings. Also, as a reminder, applicants are no longer notified by mail
