MN Fall Turkey Hunt Applications are Open

Recommended Posts

From MN DNR News:

Hunters who wish to apply for one of 10,430 permits for the fall turkey hunt must do so by Friday, July 30, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Applications are available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold.

Application materials and maps of permit areas are available on the DNR HSOforum at http://www.mndnr.gov.hunting/. Winners will be notified by mail by mid-September.

Application must be made at any DNR license agent, by phone or online. Online and phone options offer 24-hour-a-day service at www.mndnr.gov/buyalicense or 888-665-4236.

Turkey hunters may apply for one permit from 67 different hunting areas that will be open from Saturday, Oct. 2, to Sunday, Oct. 31. This single season replaces multiple fall seasons.

Youth who want to turkey hunt in the fall must apply. Over-the-counter sales of fall turkey permits are not available.

The fall turkey hunt application fee is $3. The license costs $23 for residents and $78 for nonresidents. The $5 stamp validation has been incorporated into the license fee. A separate stamp no longer is required.

Just wondering. If you bought a spring tag with the fee for the stamp included, do you get charged for the stamp again?

You will not have to buy another stamp.It will be good for the spring and fall.This was a great change for the fall turkey hunt.More like WI now.

and I hear....

Along the same lines as the APR in zone 3. Those hunters are required to shoot only bearded hens with a 10" beard restriction.. Toms Must have a visible 12" beard of 33 strands of bearded feather, and must also be sporting 1.75" spurs. This is so those hunters can get acclimated to counting.

Now that is funny.Soon we will not have the choice to harvest a animal. It will have to look like a magazine cover.

If you were drawn in the spring can you apply again in the fall?

Yes, the spring and fall seasons are two completely seperate hunts. Your spring preferance has nothing to do with the fall season.

Does anyone know if your preference points are taken into account when rewarding these "Fall" permits/tags??

Also, will I earn a preference point if I am not drawn?

Thanks

Your spring preference points have no bering on the fall hunt.
