Deer application deadline is June 3

Deer application deadline is June 3

By North Dakota Game and Fish Department

Hunters are reminded that June 3 is the deadline for submitting applications for the 2020 deer gun season.

Because the Game and Fish Department offices closed to public access until further notice, applicants for regular deer gun, youth and muzzleloader are reminded to apply online.

Hunters can also call (800)406-6409 to apply; a service fee is charged for applications made through the 800 number.

Applicants should note that beginning this year, a general game and habitat license is required when applying for a regular gun, youth or muzzleloader deer license. If the applicant has not already purchased one for the 2020-21 season, the license will be added to their cart upon checkout.

Applicants have the option of having the general game and habitat license refunded if their deer license is not drawn in the lottery. 

Gratis applicants also must apply online because the toll-free licensing telephone number is not set up to receive gratis applications.

Gratis applications received on or before the regular deer gun lottery application deadline will qualify for an any-legal-deer license. Gratis applications received after the deadline will be processed based on licenses remaining after the lottery. Generally, only antlerless licenses remain.
