Thanks for the reminder. I just might throw my hat in the ring this year for my home unit.

From the Game and Fish:

Deer Gun Applications Due June 3, Resident Gratis Now Online

North Dakota deer hunters are reminded the deadline for submitting applications for the 2009 gun season is June 3.

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

In addition, the deadline for submitting an antlerless white-tailed deer gun application for ages 12 and 13 is Sept. 1. Hunters are reminded that completion of a hunter education course is required before applying.

Prospective hunters can apply online, or print out an application to mail, at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department HSOforum, gf.nd.gov. Landowners should note that the resident gratis application is now available for completion online.

Deer applications are also accepted by calling 800-406-6409, and are available at county auditors, license vendors and Game and Fish offices.

Anyone mailing applications to the Game and Fish Department is advised to mail early because some post offices use the following day’s postmark for mail received after regular hours. The department’s online application feature will be deactivated June 3 at midnight.

Well, I submitted an app. We'll see what happens in July but I'm not expecting too much as a first timer.

Apps in and now I'll wait until the doe tags become available for the lottery.

Good luck to all. I have 2 preference points so I may stand a fair chance.

I will archery, gun and muzzleloader hunt if all the tags come through.

From what I have been told by area ranchers and hunters, the herd in our area did well this past winter.

I see they reduced the number of licenses this season with 100 less buck tags (10%+ reduction) in the unit I choose to hunt. That's not going to help the odds.

I always have my buck archery tag so I don't get real concerned if I don't get the rifle tag. If I keep my preference going, every other time its a smoke pole and then a rifle. Plus, one gets those doe tags also.

I do remember when I would get 1 archery tag only and to hunt all fall, one needed to be very picky with what you shot or your season was over in a weekend.

I need to hunt all fall from the opener through November.

I agree Iff. The flat tops are better eating but its nice to have the buck tag just incase big daddy comes strolling by.

Typically once one sees on the Game & Fish HSOforum that the lottery is under way, Its another 2-3 days before the results are out.

I hope you are correct as I would really like to know what type license if any I will recieve.

You were correct Dan as yes the lottery was held. That is the fastest they have ever done the lottery

1 buck tag for me. My son also recieved a buck tag. Also a buck tag for my sons friend. Now to the flat top tags and then the archery season.

Never have we pulled 3 tags in one season for rifle buck. I would guess that the lottery apps were down due to the economy.

Looks like we will be hunting all fall.

I pulled a Buck Tag... no complaints here!

Applications should be available in the next couple weeks for the 3rd Lottery... a pretty cheap way for a non resident to get a doe tag!

Yes, the doe tags are the best buy. I hope to get a few and use 1 for an extra archery tag and one for the muzzleloader.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
