There’s a limited number of permits that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources issues to hunters in the state. The licenses are awarded through a lottery process. There’s also a specific number of permits allotted for each area of the state. The DNR regulates the number of female deer harvested in these areas to maintain a healthy deer population according to their measurements.
