The North Dakota Game and Fish Department will have 382 any-deer bow licenses available to nonresidents in 2017.

The deadline for applying is  March 1. A lottery will be held if more applications are received than licenses available. Any remaining licenses after  March 1  will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants can apply together as a party. A separate check is required for each application.

The  nonresident any-deer bow application  is available at the Game and Fish website,  gf.nd.gov. The application must be printed and sent in to the department.

The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses available is 15 percent of the previous year's mule deer gun license allocation. The Game and Fish Department issued 2,550 mule deer licenses in the 2016 deer gun license lottery.
