This spring, you may still enjoy many outdoor activities, including hunting, as long as you practice proper social distancing by staying at least six feet from those who don’t live in your household.

Spring turkey season begins Apr. 17

The spring turkey season is the perfect way to kick off spring!

Are you looking for a more flexible option this spring? For a longer season, private-land hunters in southern Michigan can purchase a Hunt Unit ZZ (Hunt 0301) license for Apr. 17 through May 31.

The Hunt 0234 license is another great option for new or seasoned hunters. This guaranteed license allows you to hunt the entire month of May on public and private lands statewide, except for public lands in Unit ZZ (southern Lower Peninsula). Learn more about the Hunt 0234 license in the Spring Turkey Digest.

If you didn’t apply for a spring turkey license, or if you weren’t successful in the license drawing, leftover licenses and Hunt 0234 licenses can be purchased online.
