Turkey hunters who were unsuccessful in this year’s spring
hunting season lottery may apply for surplus permits starting at 5
p.m. on Monday, March 15.
The Minnesota DNR makes surplus permits available at all license
agents and online at www.mndnr.gov/news. Online
information also includes details on surplus license availability
and the status of lottery applications.
Hunters who did not enter the lottery will be able to purchase
any remaining surplus licenses beginning at 8 a.m. on Monday, March
Because hunting access in many zones is limited, hunters should
obtain landowner permission before purchasing a surplus permit.
Hunters who purchase a surplus permit do not lose any existing
preference for future lottery drawings. Online Information:
