North Dakota Elk Hunters in E3 and E4 Have Second Chance

Elk hunters with unfilled any-elk licenses in units E3 and E4 are reminded that their license is restricted to antlerless elk only from Jan. 1-21.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department amended the 2010 bighorn sheep, elk and moose proclamation by extending the elk season to Jan. 21 for units immediately adjacent to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The closing date coincides with the National Park Service's management action for reducing the park's elk population.

Extending the season outside the park enhances the opportunity for an increased harvest, and diminishes the likelihood of elk moving from the park to forage supplies of adjacent landowners.
