North Dakota's deer gun lottery has been held and individual results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department's website. Successful applicants will receive their license in the mail by mid July.

The first lottery application process – deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner – had 94,000 applicants, the same as last year. Fifty-nine percent of the applications were submitted online.

Nearly 63,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain. Unsuccessful resident applicants in the first drawing will be mailed a second lottery application with a July 23 deadline. The second lottery will take place prior to those who seek additional licenses.

Resident and nonresident hunters who have not yet applied, or who want additional licenses, must submit a third lottery application no later than July 30. Apply online or print a paper application. Applications will be available from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors by mid-July.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Units 2C and 2D remaining doe licenses can be used during the 7-day September antlerless deer gun season. Hunters must stay in the assigned unit (2C or 2D).

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