Free Hunting, Fishing Licenses for Michigan Military

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Active-duty military members living in Michigan can now get annual hunting and fishing licenses for free.

The Department of Natural Resources announced the new policy Monday. Military members must be on active duty, have a Michigan residence and have maintained their residence status in order to vote or get a driver's license.

Qualified military members can get a free resident military all-species fishing license or any hunting license that doesn't require a lottery.

Before, military members had to pay $1 for such licenses. Gov. Rick Snyder signed the new law earlier this month.

The department says that applicants have to show proof of military status when applying for the license. Acceptable proof of military status includes a military ID, leave papers or duty papers.
