If you applied for a North Dakota elk or moose license, the waiting is over.
The Game and Fish Department on Thursday, April 18, said it has completed its moose and elk lotteries, and individual results are available by clicking the My Account tab on the department’s website at www.gf.nd.gov.
A total of 15,516 applications were received for bighorn sheep, 19,290 for elk and 22,456 for moose.
While in My Account, successful applicants must pay for a moose and/or elk license. In addition, a 2019-20 general game and habitat license, or combination license, is required. The moose/elk license will be mailed after the required hunting licenses are purchased.
Hunters in moose unit M10 and elk unit E6 are reminded of restrictions that prohibit transporting the whole carcass, including the head and spinal column, outside of the unit. For more information, visit the chronic wasting disease page on the Game and Fish website.
The bighorn sheep lottery is scheduled for September, after summer population surveys are completed and total licenses are determined. Once the lottery is held, successful applicants will be contacted to select a hunting unit.
