Minnesota DNR: Plan for 2008 deer license options

Minnesotans who intend to hunt deer this fall may want to start scouting their license-buying options now. The Minnesota DNR is reminding hunters that 2008 deer hunting licenses will be a departure from the past.

"We've simplified license-buying and a number of regulations," said Dennis Simon, DNR Wildlife Section chief. "And because of that, we ask that hunters, during this transition year, familiarize themselves with those options now. Our aim is to avoid potential confusion during the last-minute rush of license buying in early November."

Deer hunting licenses are now available for purchase. The regulation book, which includes a color map, helps explain the new system.
