Minnesota Spring Turkey Hunting Applications Open

Posted: Updated:

Applications for the 2014 spring season will be accepted wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold and online at www.mndnr.gov/buyalicense from Wednesday, November 27 through Friday, January 10, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The 2014 spring hunt will consist of six five-day and two seven-day seasons. A regulation change in 2014 means hunters need to apply for only the first three time periods, seasons A through C. All licenses for the last five time periods, seasons D through H, are unlimited and available over-the-counter.

A second regulation change closes the portion of Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area (permit area 511) surrounding the wildlife office headquarters to hunting. The remainder of Carlos Avery will remain open to wild turkey hunting.

Wild turkey hunters interested in hunting this spring must apply at a DNR license agent, online at www.mndnr.gov/buyalicense or toll-free, 888-665-4236. A non refundable $4 application fee must be paid at the time of application. There will be an additional fee for Internet or telephone transactions.

Hunters who are successful in the drawing and choose not to buy a tag will lose the current year's preference point for future drawings but not accumulated preference points from past years. Hunters who are not successful in the drawing will be eligible to purchase surplus turkey permits, which are sold on a first-come, first-served basis in mid-March.

Archery spring turkey licenses are good for the last five time periods in their entirety.

Hunters younger than 18 must purchase their licenses over-the-counter and need not apply for any season. All youth licenses are valid for all eight time periods of the spring hunt.

Prospective hunters may obtain an application information sheet at DNR license agents or view online at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey beginning Wednesday, Nov. 27. Hunt information materials include a map of wild turkey permit areas, permit quotas, dates and information on changes.

For more information, contact the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157, toll-free, 888-646-6367 or info.dnr@state.mn.us. For questions about the changes to the Carlos Avery (permit area 511) call the Carlos Avery office at 651-296- 5290.
