North Dakota Big Game Apps Due March 17th
Applications for this fall's bighorn sheep, elk and moose hunting seasons must be in the mail and postmarked before midnight March 17.
To apply online, including landowner moose and elk applicants, access the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s website, gf.nd.gov. Applications are also available at Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors.
Individuals mailing applications to the department are advised to mail early because some post offices use the following day's postmark for mail received after regular hours. The department's online application feature will be deactivated March 17 at midnight.
Bighorn sheep, moose and elk lottery licenses – including second choice cow elk licenses – are issued as once-in-a-lifetime licenses in North Dakota. Hunters who have received a license through the lottery in the past are not eligible to apply for that species again.
