Free junior deer hunting licenses at Meijer stores.

September 8, 2015

Young hunters, ages 16 and younger, once again will have the opportunity to get a free junior deer hunting license at all Meijer stores in Michigan Sept. 11 and 12.

Youths must be accompanied by an adult, and should print out and bring the free junior deer hunting license coupon to the store’s sporting goods department.

The coupon is valid for a single junior deer hunting license, a $20 value, or mentored youth hunting license. Those who hunt in Michigan also must purchase a base license, which costs $6 for youths ages 10-16. The base license allows hunters to hunt small game and purchase additional hunting licenses. The mentored youth hunting license, valid only for hunters under the age of 10, includes a base license and does not require separate purchase of the base license.

Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Meijer has offered youth hunters free deer hunting licenses since 2008. To find a Meijer store location, visit
