Minnesota: Prairie Chicken Hunting Applications Due
The MN DNR is taking applications for hunters wanting to hunt turkeys or prairie chickens, or both. Deadline is July 27. There will be 4,490 fall turkey permits offered and 182 permits for the prairie chicken. The prairie chicken season is two birds per hunter and remember you can also take sharp-tailed grouse while hunting prairie chickens. MN estimates the prairie chicken population at 1,760 adult male prairie chickens and expects four times as many in fall.
