MN Surplus Turkey Licenses Available Sept. 13

Fall wild turkey hunting licenses that remain after the landowner and regular lottery drawings will be available at noon on Monday, Sept. 13, at Minnesota Department of Natural Resources license agents and online at, according to a DNR news release.

Leftover permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Until noon on Sept. 20, hunters who were not chosen in the fall turkey permit lottery may purchase a surplus license. After noon on Sept. 20, people who did not apply in the lottery may purchase a license.

Because hunting access in many zones is limited, hunters should obtain landowner permission before purchasing a leftover permit. For 2010, the fall hunt has been changed to a single 30-day season running from Oct. 2-31.

Hunters may check the availability of leftover licenses or the status of their lottery applications on the DNR website at
