The license includes hunting permits for muzzleloader, spring and fall turkey, bear, coyote night hunt, pheasant, state migratory waterfowl, one expanded archery antlerless deer permit, and one expanded archery either sex permit.
Note: A lifetime license purchased for a hunter under 16 years of age is considered a junior license until upgraded to an adult license by contacting MDIFW.
