Applications: We will begin accepting applications May 15th, 2020.
Payment by Check Is Increasing to $25: Those hunters who pay their enrollment fee by check will see an increase in that to $25. This is due to the extra costs that MBRB incurs in handling/processing check payments in order to bring revenues from checks in line with payments done electronically. You can avoid the extra cost by paying online – the system is secure, as all transactions are handled by PayPal and at no time does MBRB store any of your personal payment information.
New Board Member Positions: The MBRB Board of Directors voted in January 2020 to add two additional seats on the Board. If you are interested, please see the application form here: Application . Complete the application, contact a Board member for an endorsement and then submit the application either by mail to the MBRB mailbox, or scan and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications need to be received by May 15, 2020. Your application will be reviewed by the Board early in June and the finalist candidates will be invited to in-person interviews to be held at a later date.
Dates for Minnesota River Valley Hunts – 2020: The dates for the 2020 Long Meadow Lake and Bloomington Ferry hunts have been determined, along with the orientation date. There will NOT be a hunt in the Upgrala unit in 2020.

Deer Scents: Starting in fall 2017, ONLY synthetic-based deer scents are permitted in MBRB hunts. This is to help combat the spread of CWD in Minnesota. Though we realize this will have only a small impact, the MBRB Board wishes to do what is possible to help maintain the health of the Minnesota deer herd.
