UND is taking applications from bow hunters interested in one of five archery deer permits available again this fall on 160 acres of land the university owns along the Forest River northwest of Inkster, N.D.
Ike Schlosser of the UND biology department said the university partners with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department to manage the site as the Forest River Biology Station and Wildlife Management Area. UND has owned the site since the 1960s and has used it for various classes and research projects.
Last year marked the first time UND had opened the area to archery hunting, and about 25 hunters applied for the five available permits, Schlosser said.
The deadline to apply for the UND archery license is June 16, Schlosser said. North Dakota’s archery deer season opens at noon Aug. 29 and closes Jan. 4.
To apply, prospective hunters should send a letter to Isaac Schlosser, Department of Biology, Deer Permit, Starcher Hall, 10 Cornell St.-Stop 9109, Grand Forks ND 58202-9019.
Successful applicants also will have to purchase a regular archery license from the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
