There’s still time to hunt for deer, pheasants and ruffed grouse. Find a license agent near you, or purchase your license online through the DNR E-license website (note that while you can print your license from your own printer, the DNR mails kill tags to your residence, which could take up to 10 days). We offer telephone support Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Call an Operations Service Center or our Licensing help desk at (517) 373-1204.
