The fall wild turkey proclamation, submitted to Gov. John Hoeven's office for approval, includes a season that extends from Saturday, Oct. 13 through Sunday, Jan. 13, 2008.

A total of 8,025 wild turkey licenses are intended for the fall hunting season, an increase of 100 from last year. Hunting units 21 (Hettinger and Adams counties) and 53 (Divide and Williams counties) will remain closed to fall turkey hunting in 2007 because of a decline in turkey numbers.

Applications are also accepted at the department's toll-free licensing line, 800-406-6409. A service fee is added for license applications made over the phone.

Applications for the fall season must be postmarked no later than July 5. Only North Dakota residents are eligible to apply in the first lottery. Nonresidents can apply for fall turkey licenses that are still available following the first lottery.
