First-come, first-served deer gun licenses available Wednesday

More than 6,000 antlerless deer licenses are still available in 18 units for North Dakota’s 2021 deer gun season. These licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis beginning July 28 at 8 a.m. Residents and nonresidents who have not already received a lottery or landowner license are eligible to apply online by visiting the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov.

Hunters who want to purchase additional licenses will be able to Aug. 18 at 8 a.m. At that time, any remaining antlerless licenses will be issued as a concurrent season license, which can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. However, youth who are under age 14 (at the end of the calendar year) will be issued a concurrent season license for archery only.

There is no limit on the number of concurrent season licenses a hunter can purchase. Hunters with concurrent season licenses are restricted to the type of antlerless deer printed on the license and must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.
