From the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
-- Minnesota hunters who hope to harvest an antlerless deer this fall will want to review 2009 regulations prior to Sept. 10, the deadline to apply for an either-sex permit.
That’s because over-the-counter, either-sex permits will be valid in significantly fewer areas this hunting season, especially in portions of northern and southwestern Minnesota. Hunters who typically did not need to apply for an either-sex permit will need to do so for this hunting season.
Nearly half of Minnesota’s 127 deer permit areas are designated as lottery this year, according to Lou Cornicelli, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) big game program coordinator.
All deer hunters are encouraged to determine the status of their hunting area before the Sept. 10 permit application deadline. For further information see:http://news.dnr.state.mn.us/index.php/2009/08/10/dnr-dont-let-either-sex-deer-permit-deadline-sneak-up-on-you/#more-43137
