Deer permit lottery results mailed this week, available online
Successful applicants for both lottery deer areas and special hunts are being notified this week via postcard, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Hunters can visit http://mndnr.gov/hunting/deer to check the results. Hunters who were unsuccessful in the lottery will be awarded a preference point for next year.
For 2008, leftover either-sex permits will be available on a first come, first served basis at 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 13. Either-sex permits are available statewide at all 1,800 Electronic License System (ELS) agents. To obtain a permit, a hunter must have a valid firearm or muzzleloader license or purchase one at the time. There is no additional cost for the permit.
