Reminder: Sept. 4 is deadline to apply for deer and wolf lotteries

Those who want to harvest antlerless deer throughout much of Minnesota this hunting season must apply by Thursday, Sept. 4, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said.

Antlerless deer permits are issued by lottery. Many deer hunting permit areas that have not been in the lottery classification in recent years are in that classification this year. Deer hunters should review the hunting and trapping regulation book to see if their hunt requires entering a lottery to harvest antlerless deer.

Hunters who want to participate in special firearm deer hunts need to apply for permits that are issued by lottery; the application deadline is Sept. 4. More information on deer permit areas and special hunts is in the DNR hunting regulations handbook, at

Wolf licenses are also issued by lottery. Wolf hunters and trappers must apply by Sept. 4. Information on wolf hunting is available on the DNR website at Wolf management information is available at
