Free Junior Deer Hunting Licenses Available at Meijer Friday/SaturdayYoung hunters once again will have the opportunity to get a free deer hunting license at all Meijer stores in Michigan Friday and Saturday, Sept. 8-9.

Youths must be accompanied by an adult, and can receive the free junior deer hunting license coupon in stores.

The coupon is valid for one junior deer hunting license, a $20 value, or mentored youth hunting license. Those who hunt in Michigan also must purchase a base license, which costs $6 for youth ages 10-16. The base license allows hunters to hunt small game and purchase additional hunting licenses. The mentored youth hunting license, valid only for hunters under the age of 10, includes a base license and does not require separate purchase of the base license.

Meijer has offered youth hunters free deer hunting licenses since 2008.
