Late season CWD management hunt near Bemidji

Deer Permit area 184 near Bemidji is being added to other DPAs elsewhere in the state where hunters can harvest deer during a late-season chronic wasting disease management hunt.

The hunt will be from Friday, Dec. 16 through Sunday, Dec. 18.

The bag limit will be unlimited.  Most successful hunters in the 2021 late-season hunt bagged one or two deer.

Disease management permits can be purchased for $2.50, and do not need any additional license or permit.

CWD sampling is mandatory for deer harvested in this hunt.

Harvested deer must be taken to a sampling station.

Stations will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16 through Monday, Dec. 19.

Hunters in the Bemidji permit area are encouraged, but not required, to keep whole carcasses within the DPA.
