-- Michigan hunters can find antlerless deer license drawing results and leftover antlerless license quantities posted online at www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings.
Remaining antlerless deer licenses may be purchased on a first-come, first-served basis Sept. 6.
There are over 652,000 private-land licenses available most of which are in DMU 486-Southern Southern Lower Peninsula, and DMU 487-Northeastern Lower Peninsula, and over 41,000 public land licenses available for specific deer management units across Michigan. Licenses are sold until the quotas are met.
The season purchase limit for private-land antlerless deer licenses has increased to five statewide, except for DMU 486 and DMU 487 which have no season limit.
Baiting and feeding in limited quantities is now allowed from Oct. 1 to Jan. 1 statewide, except for DMU 487, where a total ban remains in effect because of the presence of bovine tuberculosis among deer in that region. Hunters may place no more than two gallons of bait scattered across a minimum 10-foot by 10-foot area.
Hunters are requested to place bait repeatedly at the same point on the ground and only place bait out when actively hunting to minimize direct and indirect exposure of deer to any diseases that may be present.
Hunters can also apply the 2012 Pure Michigan Hunt drawing. Each application is $4 and hunters can apply as often as they wish. Season dates and regulations have not yet been established for the 2012 hunting seasons.
Three drawing winners will receive a hunt package that includes an elk, bear, antlerless deer, and spring and fall turkey licenses along with a reserved waterfowl hunt. For more information, visit www.michigan.gov/puremichiganhunt.
