Michigan's Legal Hunting Hours Outlined in DNR Table and Map

(Table courtesy of Michigan DNR) (Table courtesy of Michigan DNR) Legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

To determine the opening (a.m.) and closing (p.m.) time for any day in another zone, add the minutes shown below to the times listed in the Time Zone A Hunting Hours Table.

The hunting hour listed in the table reflects Eastern Standard Time, with an adjustment for daylight-saving time. If you are hunting in Gogebic, Iron, Dickinson or Menominee counties (Central Standard Time), you must make an additional adjustment to the printed time by subtracting one hour.

Exceptions: Woodcock hunting hours are sunrise to sunset. Spring turkey hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one half hour before sunset. Waterfowl hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset.

Rules about hunting raccoon, fox, coyote, and opossum at night are posted online at Michigan Department of Natural Resources Web site, www.michigan.gov/dnr.
