From North Dakota Game and Fish Department
-- Approximately 30 landowners in 19 hunting units across the state would like be hosts to antlerless deer hunters this fall. There are nearly 350 openings for doe hunters.
Participating landowners are located in hunting units 2C, 2D, 2G2, 2I, 2J2, 2K2, 3A4, 3B3, 3C, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4B, 4D, 4E and 4F.
The program is not intended for buck hunters, but designed to direct hunters with antlerless licenses to specific areas to reduce deer populations.
Interested hunters can get their name on a list of possible participants by signing up online at http://gf.nd.gov/gnfapps/huntercontact/.
Hunters without internet access can sign up by calling (701)328-6300.
Hunters will provide their address, hunting unit(s) where they hold valid antlerless licenses, and if using rifle, muzzleloader or bow. From this list the department will select the number of hunters landowners have agreed to host. These hunters will be sent the landowner's name, phone number and any information relating to the landowner's specific situation.
Not everyone who signs up will end up with a new place to hunt, because not everyone's schedule will match with a landowner's, but Game and Fish expects more people will sign up for the list than there are openings.
North Dakota's 2011 regular deer gun season is Nov. 4 to 20. The archery season extends Sept. 2 through Jan. 8, youth season is from Sept. 16 to 25 and muzzleloader runs from Nov. 25 to Dec. 11.
