Deer lottery held, licenses remain
North Dakota’s deer gun lottery has been held. Individual results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department’s website, gf.nd.gov.
Chief of administrative services Kim Kary said moving to an online lottery has resulted in reducing the time between the application deadline and the lottery run date.
“It’s a major benefit in moving to an all online lottery application process,” Kary said.
Game and Fish will mail deer licenses to successful applicants after they purchase a valid 2019-20 hunting license. All deer hunters, regardless of age, are required to have a general game and habitat license in addition to their deer license.
More than 6,000 deer gun licenses remain. Only resident applicants who were unsuccessful in the lottery can apply for remaining licenses.
More than 78,000 individuals applied for a deer gun lottery license, in addition to about 13,500 gratis applicants. The 2019 deer gun proclamation allows for 64,500 deer gun season licenses. Unsuccessful applicants can apply online for remaining licenses beginning July 10. The deadline for applying is July 24.
