http://www.michigan-sportsman.com/forum/index.php?posts/6360547 Since permanent ice shanties are not exclusive to us Darkhouse anglers, I thought I'd share here as well. We have had several requests to change the language of the laws governing owner identification on permanent ice shanties. It turns out that this is statute the needs to be changed my the Michigan legislature, not just the NRC. We, MDAA, have worked with representatives to change the law from the current requirement of having permanent shanties marked with the owners full name and address, to also allowing for the use of Driver's License number, or DNR Sportcard number. There is also a request to remove the dates permanent shanties must be removed by to one the can be set by the DNR according to ice conditions.
