Does Any One Know Anything About The Chances To Take A Bear In Minn. I May Have A Chance To Go For Free, Only Pay For Licenses And Room. Has Any One Had Success There.

You have to have your application in by May 5th. I think you can apply starting late March (not sure exact date).

I have never gone but my dad has a buddy that goes just about every year. They usually do well from what he tells me.

Where In Mn are you going? There are quite a few bear but most are small. I would suggest a bug tamer

You only need to apply if you plan on hunting the Quota Zone. Non-Quota tags are OTC.
Success depends on many things. Yes, there are bears in MN, a few nice ones, but average is 170lbs or so.
A little more info from you and can maybe provide a little more info from me! :) What area? Quota or non? Dates? Ect.
If it's free, I say DO IT. What do you have to lose?

If you have someone who knows how to bait you will have success. Last year was my first year on public land and we had 5-7 bears per site on 8 sites. Went 6 for 6 on bears. 4 color phase. Good luck.
