-- Approximately 24,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain following North Dakotas first lottery application process deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner.
Nearly 100,000 persons applied; 73 percent of the applications were submitted online, and individual results of lottery are available online at www.gf.nd.gov.
Unsuccessful resident applicants in the first drawing will be mailed second and third lottery applications. Resident and nonresident hunters who have not yet applied, or who want additional licenses, must submit a third lottery application.
The deadline for submitting applications is Aug. 10. The second lottery takes place immediately prior to the third.
Third lottery applications will be available in mid-July. Applicants can apply online or print an application by accessing the Game and Fish website. Paper applications are available from license vendors.
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, youth deer license hunters ages 14 and 15 may purchase additional concurrent season doe licenses to use during the youth season.
Last year, licenses were sold out in all but three units prior to opening day of deer season. Hunters are encouraged to apply early if they have a specific unit in mind.
