North Dakota's nonresident any-deer archery licenses, good for either whitetail or mule deer, have all been issued by lottery drawing for the 2011 bow season.
A total of 1,091 licenses were available, with 1,172 nonresidents submitting an application by the March 1 deadline. Unsuccessful applicants have their name placed on a waiting list if any licenses are returned.
Nonresidents can still purchase a white-tailed deer bow license. There is no limit to the number of whitetail bow licenses issued each season, but there is a limit of one deer bow license per hunter.
The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses available is 15 percent of the previous year's mule deer gun license allocation. The Game and Fish Department issued 7,275 mule deer licenses in the 2010 deer gun lottery.
