North Dakota Game and Fish completes deer lottery; More than 6,000 brands of weapons remain

The Hunting and Fishing Department of North Dakota has completed its deer gun lottery, and individual results are available on the Hunting and Fishing website at

The change to an online lottery has resulted in a reduction in the time between the application deadline and the lottery execution date, said Kim Kary, head of administrative services.

"It's a great benefit to move to an online lottery application process," Kary said.

The Hunting and Fishing Department will mail deer licenses to selected applicants once they have acquired a valid 2019-20 hunting license. All deer hunters, regardless of their age, must have a general habitat and game license in addition to their deer license.

More than 6,000 licenses of deer weapons remain. Only resident applicants who did not succeed in the lottery can apply for the remaining licenses.

More than 78,000 people applied for a deer gun lottery license, in addition to approximately 13,500 free applicants. The 2019 deer weapons proclamation allows 64,500 season licenses for deer weapons.

As of July 10, unsuccessful applicants can apply online for the remaining licenses. The deadline to apply is July 24.
