Young hunters can soon take to the field in North Dakota in search of deer.

A 9 ½-day deer hunting season for youth begins at noon Central time on Friday, Sept. 13.

Licensed residents who turn age 11, 12 or 13 in 2019 are allowed to hunt statewide, but only for antlerless white-tailed deer.

Resident deer gun hunters who turn 14 or 15 this year, with a "youth season" license, can hunt statewide for any deer, except a special license is required to hunt antlered mule deer in units 3B1, 3B2, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E and 4F.
