North Dakota Muzzleloader Season Opens Nov. 25

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

North Dakota’s muzzleloader deer season opens at noon Friday, Nov. 25 and continues through Dec. 11. Hunters with a lottery muzzleloader license can hunt white-tailed deer statewide.

In addition, unfilled second, third or other concurrent season any-antlerless, antlerless whitetail or antlerless mule deer licenses are still valid, but only in the unit to which the license is assigned. Hunters with these licenses must use a muzzleloader and hunt only the species printed on the license.

  North Dakota was another


North Dakota was another state reporting decreases in deer (whitetail) population due to disease and the harsh weather taking its toll on both deer species.  Non-resident hunter licensing may be adversely affecting revenue as well.  I am certain other states will be coming up with alternatives to gain more hunting opportunities to generate or replace lost revenue.  As for muzzleloader season I wil be trying my luck in 2012 here in Colorado before I venture out to another state.  Overall good for North Dakota hunters to have this muzzleloader possibility.

I'm always looking for more

I'm always looking for more opportunity and this looks like it could be a good one. A late season would be exactley what I'm looking for to not interfere with my colorado or Texas hunts. I have been watching the late Nebraska muzzleloader season and wil now have to check this one out as well to see what they allow and all the rules. I have lots of plans I just need to find the time and money to get them all taken care of.
