MARQUETTE — Applications for bear hunting permits for next fall are still available. The deadline for applications is Wednesday. There will be 4,191 permits issued for next fall, including 3,191 for seven bear management units in the Upper Peninsula. The season is being split into two hunt periods this year. The U.P. units will have seasons from Sept. 10 to Oct. 16 and Sept. 15 to Oct. 21. The exception to those dates is on Drummond Island, where a limited season will be from Oct. 8-14. Bear hunting guides defining where the units are and how many permits are available for each unit are available at license dealers and state Department of Natural Resources offices. Persons not receiving a harvest tag for the unit they apply for will have the option of obtaining any leftover tags for other units or receive a refund on their application fee. The cost of applying for the license and a harvest tag is $14.35. Seniors and lifetime license holders can pick up applications at any DNR office for no charge.
