Hook and Hunting: A New Way To Register Deer

There’s a new way for hunters to register their deer in Michigan.

The Michigan DNR implemented a new online registration form that allows people to put in information about their deer without having to stop by a DNR Check Station in person.

This year is the first time online registration has been available in Michigan.

The DNR Office in Traverse City says that in-person visits are lower this year, and say that you can still bring your deer to their check station.

“Online it’s available nearly instantaneously for statewide totals, updates on how the season’s progressing and then it’ll allow our biometricians to process their information much quicker,” said Steve Griffith, a DNR Wildlife Biologist.
