    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.

    Here is what Ohio has:

    go to the second link down here:
    [ame="http://www.google.com/search?q=ohio+permission+to+hunt+form&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:eek:fficial&client=firefox-a"]ohio permission to hunt form - Google Search[/ame]

    I figured Michigan would have the same kind of thing.

    Thanks,
    Nate

    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.

    but I do need it if I want to hunt near buildings / safety zones?

    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...

    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. ;)
