N.D. Game And Fish To Issue Remaining Deer Tags Beginning Sept. 19

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department drastically reduced the number of licenses available for this year’s deer gun season, but more than 2,000 antlerless permits remain in a handful of units after the second lottery, the department reported today.

Remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Sept. 19.

Here’s a look at the units with tags available and the number and type of tags remaining in each unit:

Unit 2D: 107 any antlerless.

Unit 2L: 219 any antlerless.

Unit 3E2: 113 antlerless whitetail.

Unit 3F1: 197 any antlerless; 489 antlerless whitetail.

Unit 3F2: 242 any antlerless; 631 antlerless whitetail.

Unit 4F: 228 antlerless whitetail.

The remaining licenses are only available for hunters who haven’t already received a lottery or landowner license, and are valid only during the regular deer gun season, Nov. 9-25.

Hunters can apply online starting Sept. 19, and paper applications received prior to that will also be processed Sept. 19. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply.

Paper applications will be available Tuesday or shortly thereafter on the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov, and at Game and Fish offices and county auditors later this week.

Paper applications will not be available at retail license vendor locations, and applications hand-delivered to the department’s Bismarck office will not be processed while the applicant waits.
