DEER APPS DUE. The close of the application period is at hand for North Dakota’s firearms deer season. Applications must be submitted online through the NDG&F Dept. website and is $30 for residents. This year, there are 650 more tags available than 2017 with mule deer tags up 150 over last season.
GUIDE ME. Brush upon the deer season rules and regulations with the Preliminary 2018 Guide after you apply. From unit maps to season dates everything is available to help you plan your hunt if you’re one of the lucky 50 percent or so to draw a tag in the first lottery this year.
CAM DO. The time is quickly approaching to catch those bucks in growth mode, as antlers form and velvet expands atop their noggins. Check out reviews of this year’s new trail cameras from Point Optics and Petersen’s Bowhunting as you get ready to do your pre-season shopping.
