KIMT NEWS 3 — Half a million people in Minnesota participate in hunting each year according to the DNR and some of them are veterans.

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is encouraging them to take advantage of a new free license opportunity.

Disabled veterans are able to get a free permanent license for small game and deer hunting.

What has changed is that they do not have to bring their paperwork to the license agent each year to renew. Instead they get a permanent card to present to get a license.

“Our military personnel have made incredible sacrifices for us overseas and we just want them to know that we recognize that and giving them a free license is probably the least we could do to give something back to them,” said Conservation Officer Luke Belgard.

For more information on getting one of these cards or the regulations visit the DNR’s website.
