North Dakota’s deer gun lottery has been held and individual results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department’s website, gf.nd.gov.
Chief of administrative services Kim Kary said the lottery drawing was held more than a month earlier than in the past.
“Reducing the time between the application deadline and the lottery run date is a major benefit in moving to an all online lottery application process,” Kary said.
Successful applicants will receive their deer license after they purchase a valid 2018-19 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 3,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain. Only resident applicants who were unsuccessful in the first lottery can apply for remaining licenses.
The first lottery application process – deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner – had more than 113,000 applicants, and just under 55,000 were unsuccessful.
Unsuccessful applicants can apply online for remaining licenses beginning July 11. The deadline for applying is Aug. 8.
