You can apply to the 2011 Minnesota Black Bear Lottery three ways.

First: You can apply online for free.

Select the PURCHASE button at the bottom of the screen and follow the instructions.

Second: You can apply by phone:
There is a $3.50 convenience fee when applying by telephone.
1-888-665-4236

Third: Apply at an ELS Agent (Ex.Holiday Gas Station Stores).
BEAR LOTTERY APPLICATION (662)
RESIDENT? YES
INDIVIDUAL/NEW GROUP/EXISTING GROUP? NEW GROUP
ZONE? 44
ALTERNATE ZONE? 41

After you receive your lottery tag – pass along the information to the others in your party (if you have one). They will have to answer the EXISTING GROUP question and supply the 9 digit group number. Hold on to this number as you would any other group numbers (Ex. MN Moose Lottery, Elk, etc.) for future applications to gain preference points each year.

If you do not want to hunt this year I suggest applying anyways and selecting ZONE 99 for preference points. You just never know when you are going to get the itch to go bear hunting. I am sure you would like it to be as simple as applying.

The application deadline first Friday in May.

The lottery results are available mid-June.

License are available for purchase June 1.
