If you’re a North Dakota hunter who found yourself frustrated trying to apply for a moose, elk or bighorn sheep license Wednesday, there’s good news.

The Game and Fish Department has extended the application deadline — originally March 28 — until tomorrow, March 30.

Game and Fish sent out  a news release Wednesday night indicating the North Dakota State Information Technology Department was experiencing issues with the Game and Fish Department’s online licensing system. And since the applications have to be submitted online, Game and Fish has extended the application deadline for the “big three” once-in-a-lifetime hunts to March 30.

Applications must be submitted before 11:59 p.m. on Friday.
