From the North Dakota Game and Fish Department
-- More than 250 any-deer bow licenses are still available to nonresidents in 2009, according to Carrie Whitney, licensing supervisor for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
The Game and Fish Department began issuing nonresident any-deer bow licenses March 1, and more than 1,000 of the allotted 1,290 licenses for 2009 have been purchased.
Remaining licenses are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Nonresidents can print out an application for mailing at the Game and Fish Department website, gf.nd.gov, or call (701) 328-6300 to request an application. Only one license is allowed per hunter.
The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses available is 15 percent of the previous year’s mule deer gun license allocation. The department issued 8,600 mule deer licenses in the 2008 deer gun lottery.
