Participating veterans and active-duty U.S military personnel are required to have documentation of verification afield and present it upon request of a Michigan conservation officer, tribal conservation officer or any law enforcement officer.
The following documentation, along with a valid Michigan driver's license or voter registration card, will be accepted as proof of status: military ID, leave papers, duty papers, military orders, copy of DD Form 214, enhanced driver's license or documentation from the Veterans Administration regarding disability status. Participating veterans and active-duty U.S. military personnel must have a waterfowl license and a federal duck stamp.
