As summer winds down and we start thinking about fall, many of us are a bit depressed but for thousands of hunters in our state it is an exciting time. If you threw your name in the drawing for the Deer season the results are out at ND Game and Fish.

I have seen many sad posts on Facebook, etc. from hunters who have not been drawn again this year. I feel bad because much like gambling the draw for deer licenses is a lottery and sometimes luck is not on your side.

Deer populations are still at a all time low due to disease and harsh weather, we can only hope that the population rebounds.

Good new is that Antlerless licenses do remain, contact North Dakota Game and Fish to apply for yours.

Deer gun season opens November 6th @ Noon and Muzzle loader season November 27th @ Noon.

Congrats to everyone who was drawn this year and happy and safe hunting!
