Deer success rates improve after all-time low in 2011
In 2011, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department saw an all-time low hunter success rate of 51 percent.
A year later -- after dropping the number of licenses issued to its lowest since 1988 -- hunters found more success in the field.
There were 66,150 licenses available in 2012. Hunters took approximately 34,500 deer during the gun season, for a success rate of 63 percent.
