BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota is making 202 any-deer bow hunting licenses available to nonresidents this year, up 30 from last year.
The state Game and Fish Department says March 1 is the deadline to apply. A lottery will be held if more applications are received than there are licenses available. Any remaining licenses after March 1 will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses is 15 percent of the previous year's mule deer gun license allocation. Game and Fish issued 1,350 antlered mule deer licenses in the 2014 deer gun lottery.
