LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Application period for licenses to hunt antlerless deer is underway and continues through Aug. 15.

The Department of Natural Resources says hunters can seek one license in any open deer management unit statewide. A non-refundable fee of $5 is charged.

Drawing results and information about leftover license availability will be posted Sept. 4 at http://www.michigan.gov/huntdrawings .

Antlerless deer quotas have been reduced to about 494,000 licenses statewide, down from about 550,000 for 2013.

In the Upper Peninsula, licenses are available only in management units 122, 055 and 155. They have been eliminated in other Upper Peninsula units because of deer herd losses resulting from severe winter weather.
