Friendly Fall Turkey Reminder

I know it’s not even the 4th of July yet, but planning for 2010 fall hunts continues with the approaching fall turkey deadline next week. Have you ever thought of putting in for a turkey tag in western ND? Maybe combine a mule deer, antelope of phesant hunt with an added turkey tag in the mix? Might be an idea?

Prospective turkey hunters are reminded that applications for this fall’s season must be in the mail and postmarked before midnight June 30.

Interested hunters can submit a lottery application online, or print out an application to mail, at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website, Applications are also available at Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors, or by calling (800) 406-6409. Only North Dakota residents are eligible to apply in the first lottery.

Individuals mailing applications to the department are advised to mail early because some post offices use the following day’s postmark for parcels received after regular hours. The department’s online application feature will be deactivated June 30 at midnight.
