Mn bear permits

Unread postby Skyler_2010 » Fri Jan 25, 2019 12:07 am

I saw a note on the local news this morning that mn is going to issue less permits thus year. Anyone know where I can confirm this? Or is anyone able to confirm it?

This is the first i’ve heard of it. That’s a bummer. Since the time I started bear hunting a few years ago it has become a several year wait to get a quota tag.
Persistence is undefeated.

If they do the hunters are going to revolt.

They have been saying they are trying to be careful so we don't overharvest if we have a year with a failure of natural foods, but last year there was a low harvest because of an abundance of natural foods. So now they are saying it's because of harvest trends. The two main guys who are making these decisions are totally out of touch with the realities of the bear population in this state.

Well ya got me all worked up for nothing (maybe). Did your source say which zones will be reducing tags?

It will be interesting to see what MN does.
