More than 35,000 antlerless deer gun licenses are still available after the North Dakota Game and Fish Department recently completed its lottery.
These remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no limit to the number of licenses a hunter can receive.
All hunters, including gratis applicants, can apply online at the Game and Fish Department Web site, gf.nd.gov. Paper applications will be available by Tuesday from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors. Hand-delivered applications will not be processed at the department while the applicant waits. Residents and nonresidents are eligible, according to the NDGFD.
Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.
Remaining antlerless licenses in units 2C, 2D, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F can also be used during the respective special herd reduction season — Sept. 25 — Oct. 1 in 2C and 2D; and Oct. 2-9 in 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. Again, hunters are restricted to the designated unit.
In addition, hunters ages 14 and 15 who have special youth season licenses may purchase additional concurrent season doe licenses to use during the youth season.
Those who have an antlerless license and are looking for a place to hunt, the following units have landowners who are willing to host doe hunters in 2009: 2C, 2D, 2G2, 2I, 2J1, 2J2, 2K1, 2K2, 3A2, 3A3, 3A4, 3B3, 3C, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4B, 4D, 4E and 4F.
