Spring Turkey Hunt License Update

ATTENTION

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recent executive orders issued in Michigan, we are encouraging hunters to hunt close to home. If you have already purchased and have in your possession a 2020 spring turkey kill tag for an area far from home, go to Michigan.gov/HuntLocal to convert your existing tag into Hunt 0234.

Once you fill out the form and hit the SUBMIT button, you’ll be assigned a unique confirmation number that you can write on your current 2020 Spring Turkey kill tag that will convert it into a Hunt 0234 tag, allowing you to hunt in your chosen hunt area closer to home. Learn more.

Please check our DNR COVID-19 Response webpage for the latest information, and our COVID-19 FAQ webpage for answers to many of your questions on fishing, hunting, trails, parks, burn permits, camping and more.

  • If you have already purchased and have in your possession a 2020 spring turkey kill tag that is for an area far from home, visit Michigan.gov/HuntLocal to receive an authorization number to convert your existing tag into a Hunt 0234 tag. Hunt 0234 is a statewide hunting license valid May 1-31 for public and private lands, except public lands in Unit ZZ (southern Lower Peninsula). This license is valid to hunt Fort Custer military lands with permission. Fill out the website form, click the SUBMIT button and you’ll be assigned a unique confirmation number. Write this number on your current 2020 spring turkey kill tag to convert that tag into a Hunt 0234 tag. This will allow you to hunt in your chosen hunt area closer to home.
  • If you were successfully drawn for a spring 2020 turkey license that is a long distance from your home and you have not already purchased a turkey license, you don’t have to purchase the license that you were awarded in the drawing. Instead, you can search for leftover licenses and easily complete a purchase online.

All turkey hunting rules and regulations apply. Please see the 2020 Spring Turkey Digest or visit Michigan.gov/Turkey.

Thank you for your patience and support as we work to accommodate our valued customers and do our best to get you – safely – back in the woods!
