Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact
Michigan is a member of the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, an agreement whereby participating states share information about fish and game violators and honor each other's decision to deny licenses and permits. Poachers beware. If your hunting, fishing or trapping license is revoked in Michigan, you may lose your privileges in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, South Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Note: If your license is revoked in any of these states it also may be in Michigan. Failure to comply with the terms of a wildlife-related citation may result in license suspension in participating states.
