Michigan Bear Applications AvailableMichigan DNR, Bear Hunting Magazine
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has applications for Michigan bear hunting licenses now available through June 1. Hunters may apply online at Michigan DNR or at any retail license agent.
There will be 11,742 bear hunting licenses available for the 2011 hunting season, with license quotas remaining the same as 2010. If any licenses remain after the drawing, one leftover license may be obtained on a first-come, first-served basis in July until the quota is met in each hunt period. There is no guarantee that leftover licenses will be available for any hunt unit or hunt period.
