Bear Hunt Lottery - Applications available late March. Deadline for lottery first Friday in May.
Bear lottery winners must purchase their license by August 1, 2016. Unsold licenses will then become available for purchase by anyone starting August 5, 2016 at 12:00PM. Check the DNR web site (www.dnr.state.mn.us) on August 4th for license availability and more information.
NO-QUOTA BEAR LICENSES
No-quota bear licenses also will be available starting June 1, 2016, at any ELS license agent. No-quota bear licenses are only valid in the no-quota bear zone. When you purchase a license you will be asked which kill block / deer permit area you intend to hunt. This is only for evaluating the number of bear hunters in the no-quota zone. It does not allow someone to hunt in one of the 11 Bear Management Units without a valid license for one of those areas.
