People who checked results online prior to June 6 should re-check their status.

Successful lottery winners will be notified by mail later this month. Selected hunters who don't purchase a license by the deadline will forfeit their license.

As a result of a new rule implemented by DNR, bear lottery winners must purchase their license by July 29, however this may change to Aug. 1 depending on the passage of new legislation. Check the DNR website in July for more information.

A total of 7,050 licenses are available in 11 permit areas this year. In 2010, hunters purchased 7,086 of the 9,500 licenses available, harvesting 2,699 bears.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reran the lottery after a computer-related error resulted in incorrect preference information being used to determine winners.

BGH.net is THE place to keep up to date on hunting topics!

Thanks for sharing the state of Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources’ announcement with all of us here at BigGameHunt.Net.  I'm not in this drawing but it is good to be up to date and I have come to realize that BGH.net is THE place to keep up to date on just about everything related to hunting nationwide.  Unlike so many other so called information sites BigGameHunt.net isn’t all about selling me a product I don’t want.  It’s good information and it is provided on a timely basis which makes it actually USEFUL plus excellent hunting stories and photographs etcetera from people who share the same passions that I do.  THANK YOU BGH!
