Great Lakes Radio News UpdateMARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News)Governor Rick Snyder has signed into law legislation authorizing the state Natural Resources Commission to designate game species in Michigan.

The bill gives the commission the responsibility to establish managed open season hunts for wild game and authority to regulate the taking of fish. It exempts the taking of mourning doves, pets and livestock. The Legislature maintains its ability to both add and remove species on the list.

The measure ensures the state can schedule a gray wolf hunt in the Upper Peninsula, where residents say wolves are becoming a nuisance in populated areas and also disables a potential voter referendum to block a wolf hunt.

Additionally, the legislation allows members of the military to obtain hunting and fishing licenses free of charge and eliminates a requirement that the military member be stationed outside of the state.

Snyder also signed a bill which guarantees the legal right to hunt and fish in the state.
