North Dakota's Deer Muzzleloader Season Opens Nov. 26th
North Dakota's muzzleloader deer season opens at noon Friday, Nov. 26 and continues through Dec. 12. 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.
Doe licenses are still available in units 3F1, 3F2 and 4F for hunters who would like to participate in the muzzleloader season. These licenses must be used with a muzzleloader in the assigned unit. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply for additional concurrent season antlerless licenses.
Hunters can apply online by accessing the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website. Licenses may be purchased throughout the season as long as they are available.
