Deer Lotto results available online

19 posts in this topic

Looks like the bucks in 2G1 are pretty safe as we pulled 1 tag for 10 apps. Darn lottery is so tough with so few licenses.

Here's info on the leftover tags:

Deer Lottery Held, Antlerless Licenses Remain

North Dakota’s deer gun lottery has been held and individual results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department’s HSOforum, gf.nd.gov. Successful applicants will receive their license in the mail by mid July.

The first lottery application process – deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner – had 94,000 applicants, the same as last year. Fifty-nine percent (up from 51 percent) of the applications were submitted online.

Nearly 63,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain. Unsuccessful resident applicants in the first drawing will be mailed a second lottery application with a July 23 deadline. The second lottery will take place prior to those who seek additional licenses.

Resident and nonresident hunters who have not yet applied, or who want additional licenses, must submit a third lottery application no later than July 30. The third lottery application is available online at the Game and Fish HSOforum. Paper applications will be available from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors by mid July.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Units 2C and 2D remaining doe licenses can be used during the 7-day September antlerless deer gun season. Hunters must stay in the assigned unit (2C or 2D).

The regular deer gun season starts at noon Nov. 7 and continues through Nov. 23.

Our crew is doing good on Buck draws so far we are 5 for 6 waiting to hear on that one. Looks like our work will be cut out for us this year possibly.

Looks to be a good year for you. I always figure the hardest part of getting a buck in ND is getting the tag.

Maybe I should have a ND address just for the lottery. smile

Well I didnt draw a buck with my first attempt at a NR tag. Looks like most of our party got their buck tags though. Guess I will have to stock up on extra doe tags.

I just applied for 4 doe permits. I'll get the ones without headgear with the gun and lay the smackdown on a big boy with the bow.

Lottery Tom you have as good of a shot as I do. Might not always seem like it.

Yes in the doe lottery I have just as good a chance as the resident. But, for the buck lottery, only 1/2 of 1% of the buck tags in each zone go to non-residents annually so it is very hard to draw a buck tag. Usually 1 every 4-5 years unless one gets very lucky or finds a guide and pays $500-$750 for a tag.

Harvey.....not quite right.1% of the buck tags in each zone can go to NR.But included in that 1% are non-res. landowner tags,which are subtracted first.Also 100 tags can go to G/O statewide with no more than 5 to any G/O.Those are also subtracted before the draw.

Yes, 1% go to the non res but half of those go to the guides in that area so, in the lottery, 1/2 of 1% go to the non res. and landowners. Not many any way you cut it.

No you are wrong about that.G/O only get 100 tags statewide,not half the tags in each unit.NR landowners get guaranteed tags which amount to more than go to G/O.I would like to see this stopped or that NR landowners get does only.

4 of us got buck tags for SW N.Dakota. We'll be hunting with Logging Camp Ranch Outfitters, south of Medora. Has anyone had any experience w/ this outfit? My dad did all the research work and talked to some archery rep's and such, so it sounds pretty good. Just wondering if anyone else has been there? We'll be out there the 3rd week of October. Starting to get excited for fall!!!

The third lottery is coming up quick:

Third Lottery Deer Application Deadline July 30

Deer hunters interested in applying for a first, second, third or fourth license have to submit a third lottery application no later than July 30.

Hunters can apply online, or print out an application, at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s HSOforum, gf.nd.gov. Paper applications are also available from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply.

After the third lottery drawing, any remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Remaining doe licenses in units 2C and 2D can be used during the 7-day September antlerless deer gun season. Hunters are restricted to either unit 2C or 2D.

The regular deer gun season starts at noon Nov. 7 and continues through Nov. 23.

Thanks for the reminder Rob. I applied for all I could in the hope that I get a couple for this fall. Maybe I will be hunting elsewhere this fall as my luck is running short.

I have hunted in ND for 17 years and always gotten plenty of tags and this year it looks like maybe 2.

    • 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
