BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Time is running out for deer hunters in North Dakota to apply for licenses for the 2014 gun season.
The state Game and Fish Department says Wednesday is the deadline. It applies to muzzleloader, regular gun, gratis and nonresident landowner, and youth antlered mule deer applications. The deadline for regular statewide youth deer licenses is Sept. 1.
Hunters are encouraged to apply online at the Game and Fish website, www.gf.nd.gov. A new state law requires residents age 18 and older to prove residency on the application by submitting a valid North Dakota driver's license number or a North Dakota photo identification number.
Game and Fish is making 48,000 licenses available to hunters this fall, 11,500 fewer than last year.
