Question ORV sticker question

I'm new to the off road scene, and I have a few questions about ORV stickers. Do you need one to go on like two tracks in state land? I'm taking a trip up to Alpena and I'm going through Huron Natl forest and wanted to explore the trails through there a bit. Do I need to get an ORV sticker to legally do that?

If your going on any trial that is not a fire lane, 2 wheel drive vehicle access, or designated a "road" then you will need an ORV sticker. This is what the DNR told me when I asked in April.

For the $16.50, better safe than sorry.

I think just about everything in the Huron National Forest is marked as a "road." I went through there last year and remember seeing signs at every corner. However, I agree that for $17 you're better safe than sorry.

This is from the Michigan orv hand book-

ORV License

The DNR issues licenses for all ORVs on an annual basis. The annual fee for an ORV license is $16.25.
Licenses are valid from April 1 through March 31 of the following year, regardless of the date of purchase.
Vehicles that are licensed under the Motor Vehicle Code as "street vehicles" require an ORV license only when they are being used as an ORV. A street-licensed ORV does not need an ORV license to use forest roads, but it will need an ORV license if it is used on designated trails or in areas designated for cross-country use.
An ORV license is not required for street-licensed vehicles used on the frozen surface of public waters or designated ORV routes.
Private land owners, owners' family members, and their invited guests are not required to license ORVs that are operated exclusively on the owners' private property.
Licensing is required of ORVs used in areas open to public operations, regardless of whether the ORV is owned by a resident or nonresident of Michigan.

I always buy the sticker every year just incase i plan to hit a trail one of the many times I'm up north.
