Still Some Deer Tags Left For North Dakota

While more than 95 percent of North Dakota’s deer licenses have been issued, as of Sept. 27 nearly 5,600 antlerless licenses remain for the 2010 season.

Doe licenses are available in units 2C, 2D, 2F1, 2K2, 2L, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. There is no limit to the number of deer licenses a hunter can receive.

These remaining antlerless licenses – and doe licenses that have already been issued and are printed with second, third or additional concurrent season designations – can be used during any open season: bow season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. Hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

In addition, some landowners in hunting units 2I, 2K2, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3F1, 4A, 4D and 4E are still looking for doe hunters.

Interested hunters can apply for a remaining doe license, or enter their name on the hunter contact list for landowners, by accessing the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s website at Hunters who do not have Internet access can call the department’s main office in Bismarck at (701) 328-6300.

North Dakota’s 2010 deer gun season runs from Nov. 5-21. The archery season extends through Jan. 2, 2011, and muzzleloader season is Nov. 26 – Dec. 12. License fees are $20 for residents and $55 for nonresidents.
