North Dakota's deer and pronghorn archery seasons open Friday, Aug. 29 at noon, and hunters should refer to the 2008 deer and pronghorn hunting guides for season information and regulations.

The pronghorn archery season runs through Oct. 5, while the archery deer season is open through Jan. 4, 2009.

Bow hunters are reminded of a few proper etiquette guidelines for using tree stands: do not erect or use tree stands on private property without landowner permission; follow all regulations of the managing agency when using tree stands on public hunting areas; do not use the tree stand of another hunter without that hunter's permission; and do not remove or tamper with a tree stand without the owner's or landowner's permission.

Tree stands are private property, and theft constitutes a criminal violation that should be reported to the local sheriff's department.

The Game and Fish Department made available 149,400 deer gun licenses to hunters this fall. Bowhunters are reminded that those individuals with additional concurrent season doe licenses can use these during the archery season in the designated hunting unit.
