Hook and Hunting: Free Hunting and Fishing Licenses for Active Duty Military Members

Posted: Updated:

As of today, active duty military members who are Michigan residents qualify for a free Michigan fishing and hunting license. 

Applicants must have enlisted as a Michigan resident, and maintained that status to qualify, and also present their military identification.

It's part of a new bill passed through the Department of Natural Resources. 

Before, the licenses cost active duty members $1.

Any non-active duty member can purchase a fishing or hunting license for $28.
