North Dakota's youth-only deer hunting season opens for first-time hunters Friday, Sept. 15 at noon, and continues through Sunday, Sept. 24.

"Youth hunters who put forth the effort should find plenty of opportunities," according to Bill Jensen, big game biologist for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. "We anticipate a good deer hunting season."

The season is statewide, except for restricted licenses and units in western North Dakota. After opening day, hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset. Solid daylight fluorescent orange vests or coats, and hats are required for all youth deer season hunters and their adult mentors.

Each youth deer hunter must be accompanied by an adult while in the field.
