Did you know the DNR's Section of Wildlife manages 50 different game species? Well, they do, plus 1,400 Wildlife Management Areas too. Indeed, Minnesota is the envy of most states. It offers vast public lands, a wide variety of species to hunt and some of the best ruffed grouse hunting in America. DNR appreciates all the efforts of organized groups and individual hunters, anglers, trappers and others who supported new license prices, which were approved by bi-partisan support in the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Mark Dayton. Visit our Bottom Line section to learn more about how this increase will help your favorite hunting or trapping area.
