ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Bear hunters will have to wait a little longer to find out if they've been given a Minnesota bear hunting permit for 2011.
The Department of Natural Resources has to re-run the bear lottery due to a computer-related error.
Though no bear hunting licenses have been issued, the DNR reports some hunters may think they've been selected as a winner, when in fact they have not, because incorrect information went out on the agency's website.
DNR wildlife section chief Dennis Simon says the DNR will get the word out when correct lottery results are available.
New lottery results will be posted on the DNR's website in early June and successful hunters will also be notified by mail later in the month.
