Interested deer hunters still have time to purchase a first, second, third or fourth license for North Dakota's 2003 deer gun season, according to Carrie Whitney, State Game and Fish Department licensing supervisor.

Hunters with second, third and fourth doe licenses can use them during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzle-loader; or during the muzzle-loader season with a muzzle-loader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

As of Tuesday, Sept. 30, more than 5,200 antlerless licenses were still available in the following 12 units: 1, 2D, 2F1, 2G, 2G2, 2H, 2J2, 2L, 3A1, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F.

Interested hunters may apply online, or print out an application for mailing, at the department' internet web site, Applicants should access "instant licensing online," and then click on "purchase a license."

Applications are also available at all county auditor offices, license vendors and game and fish offices. Hand delivered applications will not be processed at the department while the applicant waits.

The regular deer gun season begins at noon Nov. 7 and continues through Nov. 23.
