Michigan DNR Recruiting Landowners to Join Hunting Access Program

Got land? The DNR wants to make you an offer.

The agency is recruiting for the Hunting Access Program.

They’ll pay you to let people hunt on your property. 

It’s all part of an initiative to control deer populations and prevent the spread of diseases like chronic wasting disease and bovine tuberculosis.

Right now they’re looking for landowners with 40 acres or more in northeast Michigan

You’ll get paid according to the size of your property, how many hunters you allow and how many hunting seasons you’re open for.

It’s an easy way to make money and help manage the deer population.

“We are targeting counties that have these diseases, either in their counties or in that surrounding area, to help hunters be able to access deer on private land,” said Katie Keen, DNR wildlife communications coordinator.

Applications will be accepted until September. If you’re interested in applying, click here.
