Lost MDNR Sportcard

Discussion in 'Questions about MI Hunting/Fishing Law' started by Chase1892, Jan 21, 2007.

  1. I've got a 15 year old son that wants to apply for a turkey license - he had a sportcard & turkey license last year (2005) but cannot find them

    Does anyone know how to remedy a lost sportcard ?

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. I am assuming you mean you need to replace a lost safety certificate, and the link is below. I think I would call to see how fast it could be mailed out since you are running out of time for a turkey license.


  3. I believe that youths have to buy a new sportscard each year. The one for last year expires. Just go to the store with the hunters safety cert and buy a new one for a $1.00
  4. If it is a lost hunter safety certificate any CO can print a temporary card for you from their laptop. Once that is printed, a permanent replacement is automatically sent to your home address within 10 days.
  5. Thanks for the reply's

    I do have his hunter safety cert - I don't have the sportcard we purchased for a dollar last year -As I understand it, we need the sportcard number to apply

    Don't know if we can just buy a new sportcard for a buck
  6. We did for the last few years (buy new ones). The store made us buy it saying the old one was no good for the current year.
  7. Sorry, misunderstood the question, but I don't have kids.

    Take him to the Secretary of State and get him a Michigan ID. Then never an issue and he will also have some form of valid ID.... There is no age limit to get the ID.. I had my brother go down and his 3 and 7 yr old have them...
  9. All good suggestions....Sportscard at the store for a buck and you are on your way....I think you can even get it online for MDNR e-License! Even easier!
  10. Thanks again for all the responses - I just noticed the info below on the elicense website stating you don't have to buy one each year - only if your address changes.

    The website directs you to purchase a sportcard from menu but I have reviewed several times and do not see the option for a $1 sportcard

    Looks like I'll have to go back to a license dealer and just buy a sportcard and enter the $4 drawing

    Do just like you did before on e-license. On the right it will ask if you need a sports card ? Mark that and it will take you to the next page. Click on checkout and it should show it your basket...

    I think I got that correct..
  12. My boys lose theirs a lot. Its easier to get a new one than to call and get the numbers from lansing, I had a number of who to talk to there but lost it.We have been buying a new one.
