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.

    • Apparently it took one to know one
    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging. 
    • And Yet, 8 years later!
    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
