Due to COVID-19 guidelines, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will not hold an in-person drawing this year to issue permits for the 2020-21 Hubbel Pond Wildlife Management Area trapping season.
DNR staff will conduct a random drawing on Oct. 13 for six available trapping permits. Staff will then contact successful trappers in sequential order to choose their trapping block. To apply, trappers should call the Detroit Lakes area wildlife office by 4:30 p.m., Oct. 12, at 218-846-8470.
Individuals who were not issued a permit for the prior 2019-20 trapping season will receive preference in this year’s drawing. Trappers interested in the drawing must possess a valid trapping and small game license. For more information, contact Rob Baden, Detroit Lakes area wildlife supervisor, 218-846-8476.
