With archery deer season under way and firearm season right around the corner, the Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters, when buying their deer licenses, to take a moment to purchase their Pure Michigan Hunt applications. The prize package for the Pure Michigan Hunt, donated by Michigan businesses and organizations, is a bit different each year due to more sponsorships and changing donations and includes $4,000 worth in prizes. Past years’ winners have taken home shotguns, rifles, crossbows, guided hunts, pop-up blinds and much more. Applicants may apply as many times as they would like for $5. Each entry puts the applicant’s name in the Pure Michigan Hunt drawing, in which three winners are selected and announced in January. The deadline for the contest is December 31st.
