LANSING, MI - The Department of Natural Resources today announced the three winners of the sixth annual Pure Michigan Hunt.\u00a0\r\nMike DiLorenzo of Rochester, Jason Eurich of Saginaw and Michael Sikkenga of Whitehall each won a pocket full of hunting licenses and more than $4,000 worth of hunting gear.\r\n\u201cI was thrilled and humbled to be picked as a Pure Michigan Hunt winner,\u201d said DiLorenzo, who works for Michigan Planners. \u201cI've been applying for a Michigan elk license for over 20 years, and to finally get one, plus many other licenses, is amazing! I truly appreciate the Michigan DNR and what they are doing.\u201d\r\nEurich's story is a bit different. His mother, Myra Eurich, applied for the Pure Michigan Hunt and has transferred the entire prize package and all the licenses over to her son, Jason. \u201cShe thought it was a hoax and called me right away,\u201d said Jason Eurich, owner of Eurich Home Improvement.\r\nSikkenga, who works for Consumers Energy, said he was ecstatic when he got the call from Russ Mason, DNR Wildlife Division chief, letting him know he'd won. \u201cIt feels like I've won the hunting lottery."\r\nEach $5 Pure Michigan Hunt application purchased helps fund wildlife habitat restoration and management in Michigan.\r\nEach winner receives elk, bear, spring and fall turkey, and antlerless deer licenses to be used in 2015. In addition \u2013 along with three hunting companions \u2013 the winners will get first pick opening morning of the waterfowl season at any of Michigan\u2019s premier Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas.
