REGIONAL— If you’re hoping for an antlerless deer tag for the upcoming deer season, don’t forget to apply by the deadline.
The Department of Natural Resources is reminding firearms and muzzleloader hunters who want to harvest antlerless deer in a deer permit area designated as lottery this season to purchase their license by Thursday, Sept. 10.
Hunters who purchase their license before this date are automatically entered into the lottery for the deer permit area or special hunt area they declare. No application is needed to take antlerless deer in permit areas with hunter choice, managed, intensive or unlimited antlerless designations.
Hunters who want to participate in special firearms or muzzleloader deer hunts also need to apply for permits that are issued through a lottery, and that application deadline is also Sept. 10.
More information about designations and regulations for deer permit areas, as well as details about special hunt opportunities, is available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer and in the 2020 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook.
