A limited number of surplus 2005 Minnesota spring turkey hunting licenses go on sale at 5 p.m. Monday, March 21, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hunters may purchase a surplus spring turkey license at any of approximately 1,800 license agents statewide, or online on the Department of Natural Resources Web site at www.dnr.state.mn.us.

For those who did not apply for the 2005 spring turkey permit lottery, this will be the first opportunity to purchase a surplus license.

The $18 surplus turkey licenses are available to anyone 12 years old and older. People born after Dec. 31, 1979, must have a firearms safety certificate to purchase any Minnesota hunting license.

More information about the spring turkey hunt is available on the DNR Web site. A list of available spring hunting permits will be posted on the DNR Web site by noon on March 21.
