Landowners Seek Deer Hunters

Landowners Seek Doe Hunters

North Dakota Game and Fish Department big game biologist Bill Jensen is currently working with 44 landowners in 24 hunting units across the state who would like to host antlerless deer hunters in 2009.

“The current list of landowners has more than 540 openings for doe hunters,” Jensen said. “We will continue to add landowners and doe hunters over the next several months, and by time the season is over with we could match more than 700 antlerless deer hunters with about 50 landowners.”

Landowners participating in 2009 are located in hunting units 2C, 2D, 2G2, 2I, 2J1, 2J2, 2K1, 2K2, 3A2, 3A3, 3A4, 3B3, 3C, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4B, 4D, 4E and 4F.

“The program is designed to direct antlerless hunters to specific areas to reduce deer depredation problems in the future,” Jensen said. “It is not intended for buck hunters.”

The Game and Fish Department first started working with landowners in developing a contact list in 2006, and the program has been very successful, Jensen said. “In fact, several landowners have now dropped out of the program because they have developed solid relationships with hunters the past few years that they now welcome them back every year,” he added. “This is how we intended it to work.”

Interested hunters can get their name on a list of possible participants by accessing the Game and Fish Department’s HSOforum at gf.nd.gov. Hunters who do not have Internet access can call the department’s main office in Bismarck at (701) 328-6300.

Hunters will provide their address, hunting unit(s) where they hold valid antlerless licenses, and if using rifle, muzzleloader or bow. In addition, some landowners are looking for hunters who use a shotgun with a slug barrel for land located near residential areas.

From this list the department will select the number of hunters landowners have agreed to host. These hunters will be sent the landowner’s name, phone number and any information relating to the landowner’s specific situation.

Not everyone who signs up will end up with a new place to hunt, Jensen said, because not everyone’s schedule will match up with a landowner’s, and more people will likely put their name on the list than there are landowners.

North Dakota’s 2009 regular deer gun season runs from Nov. 6-22. In addition, a special herd reduction season in units 2C and 2D is open from Sept. 25 – Oct. 1, and another in units 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F is open from Oct. 2-9. The archery season extends from Sept. 4 through Jan. 3, 2010; the youth season is from Sept. 18-27; and muzzleloader runs from Nov. 27 – Dec. 13.

If you're at all interested in Deer Hunting in ND here's a great opportunity.

The third lottery drawing is underway right now. When that's over there will likely be licenses available over the counter (or online) for sale for $50 (plus other licenses required brings the total to $65) and as spelled out in the article above, landowners are looking for people to hunt deer (land access)... it doesn't get much more straight forward than that.

Hey marine man, is this open to nonresidents for bow hunting?

I'd love to stick me a few N.D. corn fed does.

I would guess that it includes all with a doe tag. In the post above it does not state one or the other but only hunters with a tag.

It also states for any legal weapon. Gun, bow and muzzle loader.

I would give the ND Game and Fish a call to get on a list asap.

I would suspect so, although I'm not up on all the details.

All licenses after the first one can be filled during any open season with whatever weapon is allowed.But they are unit specific.

As for NR.....yes they can get as many licenses as are available for $50 each,$20 for residents.But the license is good for does only in a specific unit.Whereas the NR bow license is good statewide for any whitetail.I believe all the mule deer NR bow tag licenses have been sold.You could get a mule deer doe tag if there are any left after this 3rd draw.

    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
