Michigan’s Hunting Access Program (HAP) was started in 1977 and is one of the oldest HAP private lands public access programs in the nation. It started out to help hunters in the southern part of Michigan to have access to land to hunt. Over 95 % of the lands in southern Michigan are privately owned. The program uses financial incentives to private landowners to get leases on their land to allow access to hunters. The landowners get to specify what type of hunter, how many hunters at a time and what the hunter may shoot. There are rules that must be adhered to and the Michigan DNR has a online 2019 Hunting Digest that will help further explain the HAP program. We have attached a link for the online HAP property list.
