Deer lottery held, licenses remain
North Dakota’s deer gun lottery has been held. Results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department’s website, gf.nd.gov.
More than 6,200 deer gun licenses remain. Only resident applicants who were unsuccessful in the lottery can apply for remaining licenses.
More than 81,000 individuals applied for a deer gun lottery license, in addition to about 12,600 gratis applicants. The 2020 deer gun proclamation allows for 69,050 deer gun season licenses. Unsuccessful applicants can apply online for remaining licenses beginning July 1. The deadline for applying is July 22.
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.
