Use of Ground Blinds on Public Land by Hunters with Disabilities
Any person who has been issued a permit to hunt from a
standing vehicle, or who has been issued a disabled person
parking permit by the Secretary of State, or who meets the disability
standards set forth in the Michigan Off-Road Recreational Vehicle
Law, may use a constructed ground blind on public land. If the
constructed ground blind is left overnight on public land, the
following conditions must be met:
- The blind is placed on public land no earlier than 10 days prior
to the hunting season for which it is used and is removed at the
end of the season for which it is used.
- The disabled person has attached, etched, engraved or painted
his or her name and address on the blind.
- Fasteners, if used to anchor or attach the blind, cannot penetrate
the bark of a tree and must be removed with the blind.
- A non-disabled person can assist a disabled person in
constructing a legal blind on public land.
See Ground Blinds on Public Land for removal exemption on local public agency lands.
