The state of Michigan is reporting problems with people trying to buy hunting licenses on the eve of the traditional two-week deer season.

The DNR says there have been “unforeseen technical issues” with the system provided by Tennessee-based Sovereign Sportsmen Solutions.

The DNR says hunters still are required to buy a license online or from a retailer as soon as possible. Kill tags should be attached to a deer with materials that a hunter has on hand.

The DNR says it doesn’t have authority to waive the license requirement.
