Michigan’s spring turkey season is still a go and the state has leftover licenses available.

The season opens April 18. To check drawing results and purchase a license, visit Michigan.gov/Turkey.

The DNR encourages hunters to remember to avoid traveling long distances, maintain social distancing and wash hands often.


IDNR Report

Reserved turkey hunt procedures will change on participating DNR fish & wildlife areas (FWAs) for selected turkey hunters completing their hunt registration this year, as a result of COVID-19.

The changes will allow turkey hunting to continue on FWAs while maintaining social distancing practices.†Selected turkey hunters will be mailed date-specific hunting permit cards for their hunt period as well as a parking permit.

FWA offices will be closed to the public; however, the selected turkey hunters will still need to sign in each day at a property self-serve check-in booth before hunting. Hunters must maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet between each other while signing in. Both youth-season and regular-season turkey hunters will use the same procedures.
