Sept 20 2013 North Dakota youth deer season-Doug Leier

September 9, 2013

Friday, Sept. 20 at noon signals the start of a nine-and-a-half day deer hunting season for youth ages 12-15.

Licensed residents ages 12 and 13, and 11-year-olds who turn age 12 in 2013, are allowed to hunt statewide, but only for antlerless white-tailed deer. Resident deer gun hunters age 14 or 15, and 13-year-olds who turn age 14 in 2013, with a “youth season” license, can hunt statewide for any deer, except antlerless mule deer in units 3B1, 3B2, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E and 4F. In addition, a special license is required to hunt antlered mule deer in those same units.

email and voicemail

September 6, 2013

I receive plenty of email, phone and text questions. Here’s a couple you may also be wondering. When is the next deer lottery? The deadline for those who did NOT receive a first lottery tag was Sept 4. These all have to be moved into the system so it should be done in couple weeks if there’s no hickups.

Where can I get a duck stamp? The most reliable source is the post office. That’s where I go.

EHD deer deaths in western North Dakota-Doug Leier

Wildlife biologists believe recent reports of white-tailed deer deaths in western North Dakota could indicate the presence of epizootic hemorrhagic disease.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has decided to wait at least a year before developing a lottery to issue tags for the paddlefish snagging season.
While legislation passed in 2013 allows the Department to use a lottery system to issue paddlefish tags if and when needed, Game and Fish Department fisheries chief Greg Power said that after full review of the 2013 paddlefish season, and considering ongoing research on the paddlefish population, biologists have determined that a lottery is not necessary in 2014.
