BISMARCK – If you’re hoping to hunt deer with a gun or muzzleloader this fall in North Dakota, the clock is ticking. The deadline for submitting applications for the 2022 deer gun season is Wednesday, June 8.

Applicants for regular deer gun, gratis, youth and muzzleloader can apply online through the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s website at gf.nd.gov.

Game and Fish is offering 64,200 deer gun licenses this year, down 8,000 from last year.

North Dakota’s 2022 deer season includes 64,200 licenses available to hunters, down 8,000 from last year.

A general game and habitat license is required when applying for a deer license. If the applicant has not already purchased one for the 2022-23 season, the license will be added to their cart at checkout. The applicant has the option of having the general game and habitat license refunded if their deer license is not drawn in the lottery.

Gratis applications received on or before the regular deer gun lottery application deadline will qualify for an any-legal-deer license. As per state law, gratis applications received after the deadline will be processed based on licenses remaining after the lottery. Generally, only antlerless licenses remain.
