Spring Turkey Drawing Results Posted on DNR Web Site 

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced that the results of the 2005 spring turkey license drawing are now starting to be posted on the DNR Web site. The first results were posted Tuesday, March 1. Drawing results and leftover license quantities will be available at http://www.michigan.gov/dnr. Applicants who did not apply online will receive a notification postcard.

Beginning Monday, March 7, at 10 a.m. (EDT) unsuccessful spring turkey applicants may purchase one leftover license in person on a first-come, first-served basis until the quota is met. There are over 45,000 leftover limited-quota licenses available, including more than 37,000 licenses available for private land in Hunt Number 301 Unit ZZ.  Rather than purchase one of these leftover licenses, unsuccessful applicants may purchase a license for Hunt Number 234, May 2-31, which includes all areas open to spring turkey hunting except public land in southern Michigan Hunt Unit ZZ.

This year approximately 135,000 hunters applied for the spring wild turkey hunting season that runs from April 18 through May 31, with various hunting periods ranging in length from seven to 30 days. More than 44,000 square miles are open to hunting and a total of 114,170 licenses were available through the lottery.

Those who are unable to determine their drawing information by March 7 should call 517-373-3904 for assistance.
