State wildlife officials are reminding deer hunters that under state law they must purchase a general game and habitat license before receiving a deer license.
North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is not mailing deer licenses until the hunter has bought the general game and habitat license. The agency is urging hunters who don't yet have the license to get one well in advance of the planned hunt to allow for adequate delivery time through the mail.
The general game and habitat license can be purchased online at the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov.

The deer gun season opens at noon on Nov. 8. Hunters also are being urged to check their deer license for accuracy, making sure the unit and species is what was intended.
Hunters who can’t find their deer license and who have already purchased their general game and habitat license can get a replacement license from the Game and Fish website or can request an application by calling (701) 328-6300. The form must be completed and notarized, and sent back to the department with the appropriate fee.
