North Dakota's deer gun lottery has been held and individual results are available at the state Game and Fish Department's Online Services/Licensing - Find Lottery Results web link. Successful applicants will receive their license in the mail in mid-July.

The first lottery application process – deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner – had more than 92,000 applicants. Nearly 70 percent of the applications were submitted online.

Approximately 31,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain. Unsuccessful resident applicants in the first drawing will be mailed a second lottery application. Resident and nonresident hunters who have not yet applied, or who want additional licenses, must submit a third lottery application. The deadline for submitting applications is July 28. The second lottery will take place immediately prior to the third.

The third lottery application will be available July 7 online at the Game and Fish website. Paper applications for download and from license vendors will be available mid-July.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

In addition, youth deer license hunters ages 14 and 15 may purchase additional concurrent season doe licenses to use during the youth season.
