ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Hunters who think they’ve already received a Minnesota bear-hunting permit for this year will have to wait a little longer for confirmation.

The state Department of Natural Resources is rerunning the lottery for awarding permits. It says an error led to incorrect content being posted on the agency’s website.

That may have led some hunters to believe they’ve already been awarded permits. But the results may change.

The DNR says new lottery results will be posted online within a few weeks. Successful hunters will also be notified by mail next month.

The agency says the problem arose when 2009 data were used to determine hunter preference levels, not the most current 2010 data. As a result, the permit winners were incorrectly selected.

    I hate hunters. I wish they would all blow away in a Tornado. All 12 million of them. Never to be seen again. Ever.

      Really? Wow…That’s pretty Harsh. You are the kind of person that Minnesotans and others should worry about. You Need some Anger Management Counselling.

    Debbie, just go hug a tree. NOW, to more important matters, I saw how the moose lottery system worked,and it pretty much killed ALL of the moose hunting, and the DNR can’t figger it out, no matter how much we spend (legacy dollars anyone??)
    We now have MORE BEARS in this STATE than we have had in at least 40 years.
    WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?? Problem is, is that too many people think that bears are more like stuffed animals who like to pretend that they are endangered.

    DNR, get a grip on this issue, and please do it soon.

    Love the stock photo. An old ‘Winchester 94 30-30 with off set scope mount. No bluing left on that old girl. Pre-64 for sure. She’s seen a lot of days in the woods. I hate Debbiies. They remind me of cheap Hostess cake wanna bes. I wish they would all be blown away by their own ignorant self righteousness. Never to be heard whining again. Ever.

    Make sure that when you are bear hunting you look at the bear’s neck and check for a research color with bright ribbons on it before you shoot.

  9. Jessica says:

    Make sure that it doesn’t have a research collar before you shoot.
