The Department of Natural Resources and Environment reminds outdoor enthusiasts that the 2011 hunting and fishing licenses went on sale March 1. The licenses are good from the date of purchase through March 31, 2012, unless otherwise specified for restricted hunts. Persons who purchase four or more licenses at one time are eligible for a 15 percent discount. Prices have not changed from 2010 prices.
Anglers are not required to possess a 2011 fishing license until April 1, when the new season begins and new regulations take effect. Check the 2011 Michigan Fishing Guide for regulations changes. Anglers should be advised, however, that the daily creel limit for walleye on Lake Erie may change May 1.
