The 2015 turkey patch, designed by Phoebe Talaga of Lake Orion High School, is now available for purchase. The Michigan chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, in partnership with the DNR, coordinates the wild turkey patch program.

Young hunters, 17 years old and younger, who have a valid wild turkey hunting license may receive a free patch. To receive a patch, please send name and complete address, along with a legible copy of the youth's valid wild turkey hunting license, to National Wild Turkey Federation, Wild Turkey Patch Program, P.O.
