Active Duty Military

A number of North Dakota residents are on active duty in the National Guard or Reserve. If this call to active duty caused them to miss the 2010 deer hunting season or will interfere with their 2011 applications or hunting season, the Department has set the following rules:

  • A. No activated ND Guard or Reserve personnel will lose bonus points because they missed the 2010 or 2011 deer lotteries. When they return, they can apply for the regular lottery licenses in May or June of 2011 or 2012. They should include a note stating that they were activated and out of state and could not participate in the 2010 or 2011 lottery and that they want to have their bonus points restored.   A copy of orders supporting this situation is also helpful. Bonus points will not be restored if the service member chooses to take option B listed below.
  • B. For 2011 we are allowing ND Guard and Reserve personnel who were activated in 2010 and missed that season or who miss the 2011 lottery to purchase deer licenses without going through the lottery. They can purchase whitetail or any-deer licenses for any unit in the state. They can do this by completing a lottery application and submitting it along with the required fee and a copy of their military orders. This option does not apply to mule deer licenses. If this option is taken, bonus points will not be restored.
