Default Michigan written hunting permission form

I searched both this site and google and could not find a Michigan Hunting permission form from the MDNR? This would be for a private land owner to give permission to a hunter?

Thanks,
Nate

I would think that most people just write out their statement of permission. I am not aware of any standard form from the DNR.

I always thought it would be pretty simple for Michigan to put them in the hunting guide as many other states do. Then you could simply make as many copies as you needed for the different places you hunt. But alas, simplicity is something that eludes the powers that be in Lansing.

You don't need written permission to hunt private land in Michigan.

True, written permission is no longer required.

That's the way I understand it....here's right out of the hunting guide.

Safety Zones Around Buildings
Safety zones are all areas within 150 yards (450 feet) of an
occupied building, house, cabin, or any barn or other building used
in a farm operation. No person, including archery and crossbow
hunters, may hunt or discharge a frearm, crossbow or bow in a
safety zone, or shoot at any wild animal or wild bird within a safety
zone, without the written permission of the owner or occupant of
such safety zone. The safety zone applies to hunting only. It does
not apply to indoor or outdoor shooting ranges, target shooting, law
enforcement activities or the discharge of frearms, crossbows or
bows for any non-hunting purpose.

Especially if the owner isn't home at the time and it becomes an issue......friend used to have a paragraph typed out giving permission w/specific persons name on it.....then had them sealed so they were waterproof....worked great...

That's the way I feel, too. Better safe than sorry.

LoL.. There are many things the Michigan DNR could learn from its neighbors.

Good thought. Maybe we should outsource the MDNR's functions to Ohio or Indiana, or Wisconsin.
