Tribal members can obtain their tribal harvest (hunting, trapping, and fishing) license by submitting an application to Sault Tribe Law Enforcement, Conservation Department. You must include a copy of your tribal card and proof of hunter’s safety if born after 1960 if you are a first time applicant.
Applications will now be accepted year-round. There is no longer a time frame or deadline for accepting applications, with the exception of turkey, elk, bear and inland spearing. License holders are required to submit a harvest report for each type of license they hold. Reporting requirements vary by type of license.
Application updates and downloads will coincide with harvest seasons. Youth permits are available for members ages 10–16. We would request that disabled permit holders present proof of disability in the form of a doctor’s note. Special Needs and Nuisance Permits are available. Members will need to contact Eric Clark, Inland Biologist, for more information pertaining to these permits at 906-635-6050.
