Please Contact Governor Granholm Today!

Senate Bill 1105 sponsored by Senator Michelle McManus (R-35) and House Bill 5192 sponsored by Representative Scott Hummel (R-93) have both passed the Legislature and are headed to the desk of Governor Jennifer Granholm (D). 


SB 1105 makes it easier for new participants to become involved in our hunting heritage by allowing them to hunt with a licensed adult for up to two years without taking lengthy hunter education courses. 


HB 5192 lowers the legal hunting age from 14 to 12 and 12 to 10 for big game and small game, respectively.   


Michigan has one on the most restrictive hunting ages in the country and they also have the nation's lowest hunter retention ratios.


It is paramount that these bills be signed so that more individuals become involved in this important American heritage.  Your help is vital in preserving Michigan’s hunting heritage. 


Please contact Governor Granholm TODAY at (517) 373-3400 and urge her to support SB 1105 and HB 5192.
