MN Spring turkey hunting applications accepted through Jan. 14

Recommended Posts

Get application - Click Here

Turkey hunters have more time this year than they have traditionally had in the past to apply for this spring’s hunt, either electronically or by telephone. The deadline to apply for the 2011 spring season has been extended by about two weeks. Applications are now being accepted through Friday, Jan. 14, wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, and online.

Also new this year: the youth application process is eliminated, and over-the-counter only permits will be available for the hunt’s last two time periods.

“The spring turkey application deadline tends to sneak up on hunters,” said Bill Penning, DNR farmland wildlife program leader. “Although we’ve allowed additional time this year, we still encourage hunters to apply early and avoid the last-minute rush.”

This spring’s hunt will consist of six five-day and two seven-day seasons. All resident and nonresident wild turkey hunters interested in hunting this spring must apply electronically via the Internet - Click Here, or by telephone toll-free at (888) 665-4236 (MNLICENSE). Resident hunters must pay a nonrefundable $3 application fee at the time of application while nonresidents must pay a nonrefundable $3.50 transaction fee.

Key changes include:

 Licenses for the last two time periods will be sold over-the-counter only;

 Hunters no longer must indicate a second choice of season on the application; and

 Youth 17 and younger by April 13, 2011, are not eligible to participate in the lottery and should purchase a license for the season of their choice over-the-counter.

“Hunters are strongly encouraged to read the application materials before applying for the lottery,” Penning said. “We want them to be aware of all the changes made to the application process.”

Hunters who are successful for in the drawing and choose not to purchase a tag will lose the current year’s preference point for future drawings, but not accumulated preference from past years. Hunters who were not successful in the drawing will be eligible to purchase surplus turkey permits. These are sold, on a first-come, first-served basis in mid March.

Archery spring turkey licenses will once again be available for residents and nonresidents and may be purchased for the last two time periods only.

All wild turkey hunters seeking to hunt in spring 2011 may obtain an application information sheet at DNR license agents or view hunt information online.

Hunt information materials include a map of wild turkey permit areas, permit quotas, dates and information on changes.

For more information, call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or toll-free in greater Minnesota at 888-646-6367.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
