Lansing, Mich. (AP) – Three hunters will get a rare opportunity
to pursue four species of game animal next year under a new program
called the Pure Michigan Hunt.
The winners will be allowed to hunt elk, bear, spring and fall
wild turkeys and antlerless deer in Michigan with a single permit.
They’ll also get their choice of hunting sites at managed waterfowl
Hunters can apply for the special permit as many times as they
like. Each application costs $4 and can be purchased at license
retailers through December. Winners will be selected during a
random computer drawing in January.
Lt. Gov. John Cherry bought an application Monday as the program
got under way. He says it’s a good way to boost the state’s hunting
and conservation heritage.
