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.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
