From the North Dakota Game and Fish Department
-- More than 16,000 antlerless deer gun licenses are now available after North Dakota completed its lottery drawing. 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 website. Paper applications will be available Sept. 1 from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors. Hand delivered applications will not be processed at the department while applicants wait. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply.
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.
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.
Archery season opens on Sept. 3, youth deer Sept. 17, regular deer gun on Nov. 5 and muzzleloader Nov. 26. License availability per unit can be checked by clicking here.
