Deer hunters who still want to purchase remaining doe licenses should plan accordingly because licenses aren't issued at the time applications are received, according to Carrie Whitney, licensing supervisor for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.

"The application is processed the day it is received, but the license isn't available to be sent out until the next business day," Whitney said. "So if a hunter applies for a license on Friday morning of opening day, it will be mailed the following Monday."

As of Monday, Nov. 6, more than 7,000 licenses for antlerless deer were still available in the following 15 units: 1, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F1, 2G, 2H, 2J2, 2K2, 2L, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. "We will continue to sell remaining doe licenses through the end of the regular deer gun season," Whitney said.

These licenses are available to hunters who don't already have a license, or for those who want additional licenses. Hunters can apply online at the Game and Fish Department website, Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply.

These remaining licenses - and doe licenses that have already been issued and are printed with second, third or additional concurrent season designations - can be used during any open season: bow season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. Hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

The regular deer gun season begins at noon Nov. 10 and continues through Nov. 26.
