From the North Dakota Department of Game and Fish
-- North Dakota deer hunters have until midnight June 8 to submit an application for the 2011 gun season.
Hunters are encouraged to apply online at the State Game and Fish Department website.
The deadline applies to muzzleloader, regular gun, gratis and nonresident landowner, and youth antlered mule deer applications, specifically for antlered mule deer in units 3B1, 3B2, and 4A-4F.
Sept. 1 is the deadline for regular statewide youth licenses. In addition, the deadline for submitting an antlerless white-tailed deer gun application for ages 12 and 13 is Sept. 1. Hunters are reminded that completion of a hunter education course is required before applying.
Hunters who choose not to apply online can print an application to mail from the Game and Fish Department website. Applications are also accepted by calling (800) 406-6409. Paper forms are available at county auditors, license vendors and Game and Fish offices.
Hunters who mail applications to Game and Fish are advised to mail early because some post offices use the following day's postmark for mail received after regular business hours. The department's online application feature will be deactivated June 8 at midnight.
