Fall bear permit applications due by Friday, May 3

Posted

REGIONAL—If you’re planning to apply for a 2019 fall bear hunting permit, you’ll need to do so by May 3.

Applications for bear hunting licenses are being accepted now through the Friday, May 3 deadline. You can apply wherever Minnesota hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense, or by telephone at 888-665-4236.

A total of 3,400 licenses are available in 13 permit areas. Bear licenses cost $44 for residents and $230 for nonresidents, and there is a $5 application fee. The 2019 season is open from Sunday, Sept. 1, through Sunday, Oct. 13.

The Department of Natural Resources will notify lottery winners by June 1.

The deadline to purchase licenses awarded by lottery will be Thursday, Aug. 1. Any remaining unpurchased licenses will be available over the counter starting at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 6.

The DNR has set 2019 bear permit numbers for quota areas to allow bear population numbers to gradually increase and support a robust bear population.

Bear hunting information is available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/hunting/bear.
