Apply to hunt prairie chickens

Hunters can apply through Friday, Aug. 16, to be chosen for one of 125 permits for the 9-day Minnesota prairie chicken hunting season that begins Saturday, Sept. 28. The hunt is open only to Minnesota residents, and application procedures and a permit area map are available on the DNR’s prairie chicken hunting page.

The hunt takes place in 11 prairie chicken quota areas in west-central Minnesota between St. Hilaire in the north and Breckenridge in the south. Prairie chicken numbers are influenced by the amount of grassland habitat within the range and provide a limited, but unique hunting, opportunity in northwestern Minnesota.
