deer application deadline June 4

by Doug Leier

North Dakota deer hunters are reminded the deadline for submitting applications for the 2014 gun season is June 4. Hunters are encouraged to apply online at the State Game and Fish Department website, gf.nd.gov .

The deadline applies to muzzleloader, regular gun, gratis and nonresident landowner, and youth antlered mule deer applications (specifically for antlered mule deer in units 3B1, 3B2, and 4A-4F).

Gratis applications received on or before the regular deer gun lottery application deadline (June 4) will be issued an any-legal-deer license. As per state law, applications received after the deadline will be issued based on licenses remaining after the lottery generally only antlerless licenses remain.

A new state law requires residents age 18 or older to prove residency on the application by submitting a valid North Dakota drivers license number or a North Dakota nondriver photo identification number. Applications will not be processed without this information.

The deadline for regular statewide youth deer licenses is Sept. 1.
