Deer License Sales Up This Year
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says there has been a slight increase in the number of deer license sales this year.
The DNR says that overall deer license sales were about 2 percent higher entering this season than at the same time in 2011.
Nearly 640,000 hunters have bought one or more deer licenses. The uptick in license sales comes despite the DNR cutting back on the number of antlerless deer hunting licenses in some areas due to the impact of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD).
