After a successful firearm hunt, Michigan hunters are asked to report theri 2021 deer harvest online.
Reporting your deer is optional, but highly encouraged. All data collected helps the Michigan Department Natural Resources to manage the state's deer population.
When a hunter reports his or her harvest, they will be asked to give their hunting license number, date of birth, deer season (archery, firearm, etc.), date of harvest, county and deer management unit where the deer was harvested, whether it was an antlered or antlerless deer, number of antler points and location where the deer was harvested. The location information is kept private and used for statistical purposes only.

Deer patches will not be mailed to those who submit harvest reports online, however they can take their online harvest report confirmation number to a deer check station to get a patch while supplies last.
