Ray, My grandson just moved back to MI with his parents. He is trying to find a hunter ed class to enroll in so he can purchase a turkey license before Feb. 1st. There doesn't seem to be one available before April in our area. I was looking on the DNR website and saw the online pre certification course. If he took the online course now and enrolled in the April hands on class could he buy the license before Feb 1? If not, what is the purpose for the online pre certification test? He is 13 and really wants to go turkey hunting with me in the spring. Do we have any options?
