Deer hunting licenses in Minnesota are now available for community members.
Hunters who want an either-sex deer or special hunt permit for the coming season must apply by Thursday, Sept. 5, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Fifty-eight of the state’s 129 permit areas are lottery areas. The number of permit areas designated as lottery is unchanged from 2012. The number of either-sex permits available has increased about 10 percent, according to the DNR.
Hunters can apply for lottery deer areas and special hunts using both their firearm and muzzleloader licenses. Lottery winners will be notified in October, according to the Minnesota Department of National Resources.
