Wow eight bear points.....should be enough for any hunt the state has to offer. Good Luck when you decide to apply for the license.

I have 8 too....He is probally trying for the baldwin unit like me, 60 permits a season. I think i might even have to wait for 1 more year...

10 Bear here but really no point system for elk even though each year you try for an elk you continue to add chances for each time you buy and miss until you don't buy for three years in a row then you start over was the way it works for elk or was.... 6 Elk Chances

I am waiting for others to catch up to ten so we can all try for Baldwin been buying since it started might have missed 1 yr but the guys I am waiting on only have 6 or 7 bear points so it will be a couple more years till we can put in for a hunt...

I thought I had it bad needing around 6 points to draw a permit where I hunt in the U.P.. We don't hunt with dogs so we apply for the 1st hunt with the 5 day quiet period. Anyways, good luck when you do draw.

mine still wont work im going to call the dnre on monday morning
Good luck - I noticed that I didn't get my preference point for bear this year even though I applied and my credit card was charged. I called and got the typical transfer to 8 different people before I got someone who actually confirmed that my card was charged and i didn't get the credit for the point. I was then told I was SOL...nothing they could do - thanks for playing. Didn't even offer a refund.

Hopefully you have a better experience.

I have heard if you skip 2 consecutive years you lose your bear points, don't know if it is true or not. I have 10 points I just keep gaining points until I feel like i want to go. Don't want to lose 10 years of applying if they take points away.

I have 8-Bear and 8-Elk and 13 Moose for the state of Maine. Thats why I have 8-Bear, the Maine Moose season is around the same time as Michigan bear season and if ever drawn I want to be able to focus on the Moose season.
