ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota deer hunting licenses are now on sale for the coming season.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says hunters who want to hunt in a lottery area must apply by Sept. 6.

Currently, 58 of the state’s 127 deer permit areas are lottery areas. The DNR says hunters should carefully review the list because many of these permit areas have not been lottery areas for a significant period of time. Many of these areas, focused in northwest, north-central and a portion of northeast Minnesota, were designated lottery areas in response to hunter desire for higher deer populations.

Lottery winners will be notified in October.
