2000-2001 Deer Hunting Licenses Available March 1

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 24 FEB 00
CONTACT: Loren Hersey, 517-373-1205

2000-2001 Deer Hunting Licenses Available March 1

LANSING--Deer hunting licenses for the 2000-2001 season will go on sale March 1, at more than 1,700 retail sales outlets statewide, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources advises hunters who will be purchasing their hunting licenses early to make sure they carefully consider their options before making their deer hunting license purchase. The ability to purchase a second archery or second firearm deer license was eliminated in 1998. The Legislature then created a combination deer hunting license which allowed the hunter the opportunity to purchase one license with two kill tags. It also provided the hunter with more hunting options than the traditional firearm and archery license. In preparation for the 2000-2001 deer hunting seasons, the DNR is distributing information to all license dealers that will enable the agent to help hunters decide which deer hunting license option is best for them. Hunters have two options available:

Option 1:
Deer hunters will have the option of purchasing a combination deer license, which includes two kill tags that may be used during any deer hunting seasons. Both kill tags may be used during archery deer seasons or during the firearms deer season, or one kill tag may be used in each season. The combination license counts as two licenses toward the 15 percent multiple license discount provided when four or more licenses are purchased at one time for the same person.

Option 2:
The second license option for deer hunters is the purchase of a traditional archery deer license and/or firearm deer license. The archery license is valid during the archery seasons only and allows the license holder to harvest one deer. The firearm deer license is valid during the firearm deer seasons and allows the license holder to harvest one deer. Deer hunters will not be allowed to purchase both the combination deer license and a firearm and/or archery deer license. All deer hunters will want to be aware of these two license options before making their license purchases.

Trout, I'm not sure why they even offer the second option. I heard of people buying the second option bow tag by mistake first and then weren't allowed to buy a second bow tag after shooting a buck. They could only buy a gun tag.

The other options are there mainly for hunters who may want to buy only one license per year. If you want maximum flexability in the use of tags get the combo.

DEER HUNTER ALERT

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!!

WHAT DEER HUNTING LICENSE IS BEST FOR YOU??

You cannot purchase both the Combination Deer License and a Firearm and/or Archery Deer
License.

REASONS TO PURCHASE COMBINATION LICENSE:

The combination license includes 2 kill tags that can be used during any deer hunting season.
You can use both kill tags in the archery season, or both in the firearm season, or one in each season.
The combination deer license counts as 2 towards the multiple license discount.
You can no longer purchase 2 archery or 2 firearm deer licenses.

REASONS TO PURCHASE ARCHERY OR FIREARM DEER LICENSES:

You only hunt in one season and only want one deer.
If you are considering purchasing both of these licenses, you should purchase the combination license.

Supplemental Information Provided to License Agents:

As we make preparations for the start of the 2000 license year that begins March 1, 2000, there are several important items
that should be mentioned.

Customers must decide before purchasing their 2000 deer hunting license(s) which one(s) are best for them. Hunters
cannot purchase both the Combination Deer license and a Firearm and/or Archery Deer license. Please direct your
customers to the DNR Combination Deer License information poster before they purchase their 2000 deer license(s).

The Combination Deer license has two kill tags that can be used during any of Michigan's deer hunting seasons in
accordance with the rules and equipment that apply to each season. The 2 combination kill tags will now be identified as
"REGULAR" or "RESTRICTED."

The "RESTRICTED" combination deer kill tag may only be used to tag:

An antlerless deer during the archery seasons, or an antlered deer with 4 or more legal antler points
on one side during either the archery or firearm seasons.

The "REGULAR" combination deer kill tag may only be used to tag:

Any legal deer (antlered or antlerless) during the archery seasons, or a legal antlered deer of any size
during the firearm seasons.

Important: You will not be eligible to purchase a Combination Deer license if you have purchased and used either an
Archery Deer or Firearm Deer license.

Purchase of a Firearm Deer or Archery Deer license requires the customer to use them during the season for which they
were purchased. A Firearm Deer license is to be used only during firearm season(s) and an Archery Deer license is to be
used only during archery season(s).

Customers cannot purchase a 2nd Firearm Deer or a 2nd Archery Deer
