In years past it could be difficult for some Minnesota hunters to obtain a turkey license, but not anymore.
Bill Penning of the Department of Natural Resources has said that the state has enough permits that everyone should be able to obtain one. "It's almost unlimited" Penning said.
In the past Turkey hunting was sort of a novelty, making it high-quality for the 50,000 to 60,000 hunters that had a license. With the turkey populations re surging, the DNR has relaxed on the limit of turkey license that could be obtained.
Along with the more permits being obtained, the DNR is also looking into making more areas hunting zones, which would give hunters more options on where to hunt.
