From North Dakota Game and Fish Department
-- North Dakota deer hunters are asked to find their license and check it for accuracy, and landowners seeking a gratis license are encouraged to apply early.
It is not possible for the gratis license application to be processed the same day it is received. Instead, applications are processed in the order received and licenses are mailed the next day.
Every year the Game and Fish Department's licensing section receives last minute inquiries from hunters who can't find their license. When that happens, it's difficult to try to get a replacement license in time for the season opener.
Another reason to check the license now is to make sure the unit and species is what the hunter thought it should be.
Deer hunters in need of a replacement license can print out a duplicate (replacement) license application from the Game and Fish website at http://gf.nd.gov/licenses/apps.html.
Hunters can also call (701) 328-6300 to have an application mailed or faxed. The form must be completely filled out and notarized, and sent back in to the department with a fee.
Antlerless deer licenses are still available in units 2D, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. Hunters can access the Game and Fish website to apply online or check the updated list of licenses available. There is no limit to the number of deer licenses a hunter can receive.
