The DNR is looking for input on a proposed late season antlerless only deer hunt in southeastern Minnesota.
The DNR will host two public input meetings about the proposed hunt, potential dates, bag limits and other restrictions. One will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23rd, in the Houston Elementary School gymnasium.
The other on Thursday, Aug. 24th, in the DNR Central Office lobby, in St. Paul. Online input will be taken from Monday, Aug. 28, through Monday, Sept. 11.
The late season antlerless only hunt is being currently proposed for Saturday, Jan. 6, to Sunday, Jan. 14, concurrent with the late chronic wasting disease hunt in deer permit area 603. The deer permit areas that are proposed to be included are 346, 348 and 349 in the far southeastern corner of the state.
Populations in the three permit areas have been over the population goals established in 2014 for multiple seasons.
