Pure Michigan Hunt Tickets Available Through Dec 31
The hunt of a lifetime is the perfect gift for the hunter on your list this holiday season.
Don't forget a gift for the hunter on your list this year. Visit www.michigan.gov/puremichiganhunt or a license agent to purchase a Pure Michigan Hunt application for the hunt of a lifetime! Applications for the first Pure Michigan Hunt in 2010 are on sale through Dec. 31, 2009.
The Pure Michigan Hunt is a drawing that allows three lucky applicants to participate in every restricted-access hunt available -- elk, bear, spring and fall wild turkey and antlerless deer. In addition, those chosen in the drawing will get the first pick in a managed waterfowl area reserved hunt.
Pure Michigan winners will be allowed to hunt in any open season until their tag is filled. Hunters, for instance, who attempt to take an elk during the early hunt but are not successful, will be allowed to try again during later hunt periods.
Applicants selected for the Pure Michigan Hunt will not lose any preference points or weighted advantages for future limited-access hunts. Hunters who are ineligible to apply for elk licenses because of past success may participate in the Pure Michigan Hunt, and hunt elk again.
Applications cost $4 and individuals may enter as often as they like. Anyone who is 12 years old or older may participate, as long as their hunting privileges have not been suspended by the courts.
