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.

Word around the campfire is that the results will be known by the end of this week.

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.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
