License and Waterfowl Stamp Requirements

To hunt migratory waterfowl in Michigan you must have a small game hunting license. Persons age 16 and older also must have a Michigan Waterfowl Hunting License ($5.00) and a Federal Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp* ($15.00). For information on waterfowl seasons, bag limits and other regulations, see the 2008-2009 Michigan Waterfowl Hunting Guide and the 2008 Waterfowl Reserved Hunt brochure (PDF).

The HIP endorsement (see HIP information in this guide) is required for all persons hunting migratory birds.

Small game license options (only one required).
●Residents small game license $15.00
●Resident senior small game license $ 6.00
●Resident junior small game license $ 1.00
(These licenses are not required for a resident, resident's spouse, or resident's children to hunt on their enclosed farmland on which they live.
●Nonresident small game license $69.00
●Nonresident 3-day small game license $30.00

Federal Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp
The Federal Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp must be signed with your name across the face in ink. It is available at post offices and some Michigan license agents. All other items are available from license dealers or online from the DNR Web site: www.michigan.gov/dnr.




Looks like he's OK with just the small game. Next year he'll need the other stuff.

Good for you. I was scheduled to take my 15 yr old sister-in-law out for her first ever hunt on Saturday, and had the same question. I think I was more excited than she. Unfortunately, her grandma is about to pass away, so the outing is cancelled.
Good luck - I hope you guys have a ton of success!
