Don’t Throw Out Last Year’s Deer License
By Scott Bestul
From the Jackson Citizen Patriot:
To most hunters, the licenses needed to score a buck might seem useless once deer season is over.
Not so for Greg Woodland. The Pleasant Lake man treasures the licenses like many hunters treasure an eight-point rack. . . .
Woodland, 54, is president of the Michigan Hunting & Fishing License Collectors Club, a niche group with about 125 members from several Midwest states. . . .
[T]he holy grail of hunting licenses, an 1897 Michigan deer license with all five coupons -- which allowed for five deer to be killed during a season -- still attached, would sell for about $3,000, Woodland said.
