Spring wild turkey hunt confirmation postcards in the mail
The MN DNR has completed its 2011 spring turkey lottery and
mailed confirmation postcards to 27,320 lottery winners this week.
This blogger happily received his confirmation card for Permit Area
346, the heart of southeast Minnesota turkey country. If you
haven’t received a card yet, you can double-check if you were drawn
by viewing complete wild turkey lottery results here.
Lottery winners can begin purchasing their tag beginning March
1, and even after the start of their season, at any DNR license
agent, by telephone (888-665-4236) or on the Internet. There is an additional $3.50 convenience fee
for telephone and Internet purchases.
Surplus (or undersubscribed) turkey hunt licenses are available
to hunters who applied in the 2011 turkey lottery drawing but were
unsuccessful. A list of surplus licenses is posted on the
DNR website. Surplus licenses will go on sale beginning March 14,
2011, at 5 p.m.
On Wednesday, March 16, at 12 p.m. the remaining surplus licenses
and the G and H permits will go on sale for anyone who does not
already have a license, even if they did not apply for the 2011
spring turkey lottery. All turkey hunters are restricted to one
permit for the 2011 spring season.
Good luck chasing gobblers this spring.
