North Dakota Doe Licenses on Sale Throughout Season
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department will continue to issue remaining doe licenses through the end of the archery season. There is no limit to the number of deer licenses a hunter can receive.
While more than 89 percent of the deer licenses have been issued, nearly 15,000 antlerless licenses remain for the 2009 season. Doe licenses are available in units 1, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F1, 2J2, 2K2, 2L, 3A4, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4E and 4F.
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, landowners in nine hunting units – 2K2, 3A2, 3D1, 3E1, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4D and 4E – are still looking for doe hunters.
Interested hunters can apply for a remaining doe license, or get their name on the hunter contact list for landowners, by accessing the Game and Fish Department's website at gf.nd.gov. Hunters who do not have Internet access can call the department's main office in Bismarck at (701) 328-6300.
North Dakota's 2009 deer gun season runs from Nov. 6-22. The archery season extends through Jan. 3, 2010, and muzzleloader season is Nov. 27 – Dec. 13. License fees are $20 for residents and $55 for nonresidents.
