02/03/2020- The Michigan DNR is launching a new sales system this month, but it will impact their ability to sell permits for a time. The agency will move to a more technologically advanced system for selling hunting and fishing licenses, hunting applications, and ORV and snowmobile permits online and at retail agent locations statewide and that new system will go live at noon February 18th. However, the transition to the new sales system will begin the 15th and DNR licenses, permits and applications will not be sold between the 15th and 18th. To avoid any interruption to outdoor activities that weekend, customers are encouraged to buy licenses or permits early. Officials say moving to the new system, which will replace a 26-year-old system, allowed the DNR to upgrade its license sales technology, enhance features for customers and provide new equipment to license retailers.
